Screened November 17–30, 2017

Perpetually clad in bright lipstick and leopard prints, nonagenarian Sonia Warshawski is a true one-of-a-kind. For decades, she’s run a suburban tailor shop, the last store standing in a defunct shopping mall. She’s also a Holocaust survivor, committed to speaking about the genocide she witnessed. When Sonia is served with an eviction notice, she’s instilled with a new sense of urgency and introspection in this moving, frank, and surprisingly funny new documentary. An Argot Pictures release
