Film & Reception: Little Stones

Watch an award-winning documentary spotlighting women artists creating change around the world.

We are pleased to offer this program in place of Fresh Talk: Directing Change, which has been cancelled.

Little Stones (2017, 87 min.) unites the personal narratives of four women around the world using art to create positive change in their communities. From a graffiti artist speaking out against domestic violence in the favelas of Brazil to a dancer rehabilitating sex-trafficking survivors in India, each of these women is contributing a stone to the mosaic of the women’s movement through their art.

Directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Sophia Kruz and cinematographer Meena Singh, with music by Amritha Vaz, Little Stones was named Best Documentary at the 2017 Vail Film Festival, Best Foreign Documentary at the Female Eye Film Festival, and received an Award of Excellence from the Impact Docs Awards.

After the film, Sophia Kruz will speak with local women documentary filmmakers: 

  • Falani Spivey: director, Maestrina da Favela
  • Priyali Sur: documentary filmmaker and a global development professional, the World Bank

Followed by a reception. 


$10 general; $5 members, seniors, students. Price includes museum admission and post-event reception.
