Sonita DVD

 Sonita is an 18-year-old female, an undocumented Afghan illegal immigrant living in the poor suburbs of Tehran. She is a feisty, spirited, young woman who fights to live the way she wants, as an artist, singer, and musician in spite of all her obstacles she confronts in Iran and her conservative patriarchal family. In harsh contrast to her goal is the plan of her family Ė strongly advanced by her mother Ė to make her a bride and sell her to a new family. The price right now is about US$ 9.000.

Whatís more, women arenít allowed to sing in Iran. How can Sonita still succeed in making her dreams come true? Director RokhsarehGhaemMaghami ends up personally involved in answering that question, reigniting the discussion as to how documentary makers should relate to their subjects. This is just one of the many unexpected twists in an exciting journey replete with the setbacks and successes of a young women looking for her own path. The filmís core consists of Sonita artistically arguing against the disastrous forced marriage practices that obstruct her freedom in an impressive, dramatic rap video.
