Losing Sonia by Radka Franczak (2012, 49’)
The new documentary by Polish filmmaker Radka Franczak focuses on a young Russian Orthodox nun named Sonia, whose unconventional ways make her stand out from the world and community around her. She’s part of the religious community, but her life has its own rhythms, as she paints icons and takes care of her cats and plants. As we examine Sonia’s life, we also learn about her family history, deeply scarred by the many upheavals Russia experiences in the last two centuries.
