Sonita dreams of being a rapper. However, within Iranian society the rights of expression for women remain unequal and archaic, with Sonita and the filmmaker documenting her struggle attempting to find alternative roots for her voice to be heard. An intimate and revealing look at one woman’s creative expression- a voice that continues to define a new generation of young woman in Iran and beyond.


This event is part of Gather, an annual festival which celebrates our diverse community, culture and global citizens at the University of Edinburgh. We welcome our students, staff, families and community to Gather 04 – 12 March 2017.
