Movies that Make a Difference Film Festival

March 21 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Holocaust Education Resource Council is hosting the final installment of our film festival Movies that Make a Difference: Big Sonia! Big Sonia is a documentary film that follows the extraordinary life of Sonia Warshawski, a Holocaust survivor who, after losing her family in the concentration camps, rebuilds her life in the United States. The film explores Sonia’s resilience and determination as she becomes a tailor, a beloved community figure, and a speaker on the importance of remembering the atrocities of the past. Big Sonia delves into themes of survival, legacy, and the power of one person to make a lasting impact on the world.

Join us on March 21st, 6:30pm, at the Challenger Learning Center for a cinematic experience you will not forget! Dr. Monte Finkelstein of Tallahassee Community College will speak after the film and engage in a Q&A with the audience.

This film is free to attend. Registration is required. Funding for this program is provided through Community Project Grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Holocaust Education Resource Council. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
