April 5, 2017 (Newport Beach, CA) — Independent feature documentary film LITTLE STONES follows Brazilian graffiti artist Panmela Castro, Senegalese rap-singer Sister Fa, Indian dance therapist Sohini Chakraborty, and fashion designer Anna Taylor as they use their art to combat violence against women and to empower women and girls globally.

The powerful film is making waves after its World Premiere at the Vail Film Festival last weekend, where Little Stones won the award for Best Documentary. The film will make its West Coast Premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival, screening on Sunday, April 23 at 8:30pm at Island Cinemas in Newport Beach. Tickets are available on the Newport Beach Film Festival’s website and at the door for $15.
