Little Stones Documentary Premieres in St. Louis

Zonta Screens Little Stones to Stand Against Sex Trafficking

Join Safe Connections for the premiere St. Louis screening of the acclaimed Little Stones documentary. The screening will be preceded by an information fair and followed by a Q&A with Director Sophia Kruz. Organized by the Zonta Club of St. Louis in partnership with Maryville University and Gateway Human Trafficking, this special event is raising funds for three local nonprofits—including us—to support our St. Louis community’s efforts to address trafficking.

Little Stones, directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Sophia Kruz, unites the personal narratives of four women around the world using art to create positive change in their communities. One is a graffiti artist speaking out against domestic violence in the favelas of Brazil. One is a dancer rehabilitating sex-trafficking survivors in India. Overall, each of the four women profiled is contributing a stone to the mosaic of the women’s movement.
