Storyline

While imprisoned by her husband for fifteen years, a woman in central India invents an entirely new art form that expresses life's joy. Although Sonabai was illiterate and untrained, her artistic vision is now globally acknowledged. Her work has been the agent of significant social and economic improvement in her region. Sonabai's astonishing story confronts us with our own choices: do we allow ourselves to be victimized by our current issues or can we use our own inner resources to find creative solutions?

Sonabai: Another Way of Seeing
29 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first saw this amazing film at a screening with the author, Stephen Huyler. There are so many responses Sonabai could have had to being locked inside her home for 15 years, yet the response she choose was to create joyful art. What would you or I have done in her place? It is hard to fathom how her response moved, not towards despair, but towards creation. This transformational documentary, which is included with the book of the same name (see Amazon for details), is about the art and influence of Sonabai, a woman in India who was isolated by her husband for 15 years. It is an inspiring and illuminating film on one woman's response to enforced isolation and the subsequent impact on her neighbors and her community.
