On Thursday 8 December, a special one-off screening of documentary Sonita will be preceded by live performances from sixteen year old folk-pop singer Susie Corfield and soul/hip-hop artist Ithar MK who are both participants of local charity the Young Women’s Music Project. Sonita follows the inspiring story of Sonita Alizadeh, an aspiring rapper and undocumented refugee in Tehran, as she as she overcomes hardship and misogyny in Iran through her politically charged hip-hop.
“Young Women's Music Projects provides music education and opportunities to young women aged 14-21 - some of which are the most vulnerable in the county. For us to be able to support movements connected with girls rights is a vital part of what we deliver, so opening the screening of Sonita will be an honour.” Zahra Therani, YWMP
