In this special episode of Art Zone, Nancy interviews the local filmmaking duo behind the new documentary "Big Sonia," the story of a 92-year-old woman who survived the Holocaust as a teenager and her life that followed. Filmmaker Leah Warshawski, Sonia's granddaughter, and Todd Soliday, Leah's husband, discuss the seven-year process of making the award-winning film with its themes of truth, love, family trauma and healing and how making the movie shaped new connections within their family. Sonia, a tiny, independent businesswoman with an unbreakable spirit, travels with her eldest daughter to not only share her story, but to inspire others to lead with love, not hate.
