Film Focuses on Women Who Use Art to Promote Social Change

The Santa Ynez Valley Community Action Alliance will present a free screening of Little Stones as part of its One Community documentary film series, 7 p.m. Thursday, March 21, at Standing Sun Winery, 92 Second St., Buellton.

Directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Sophia Cruz, Little Stones is a documentary about women who use art for social change.

The 87-minute film features a graffiti artist speaking out against domestic violence in the favelas of a Brazil, and a dancer rehabilitating sex-trafficking survivors in India. Each of the women contributes a stone to the mosaic of the women's movement through their art.

There will be a public and collaborative art experience before the film is shown. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tacos and wine will be available for purchase.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
