An Afghan Refugee Rapping Out of Iran

At The Southampton Arts Center
"Sonita" was directed by Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami.

The Southampton Arts Center, in partnership with Telluride Mountainfilm, will show “Sonita,” a documentary by Rokhsareh Ghaemmaghami, an Iranian filmmaker, tomorrow evening at 7. An 18-year-old Afghan refugee living in a shelter in Iran with dreams of becoming a rapper, Sonita is in many ways a typical teenage girl, but, in the tradition of forced marriage endemic to Afghan culture, her mother wants to sell her as a bride to a much older man. 

The film won both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award in the World Cinema Documentary competition at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Tickets are $10.

In an unusual twist on musical accompaniment for silent films, William Hooker, a drummer, composer, and poet, will accompany “The Penalty,” a 1920 movie, with a solo jazz drum performance on Saturday at 7 p.m. Mr. Hooker’s 40 years as a soloist and as a leader of ensembles has established him as an important jazz performer and composer. 

“The Penalty” stars Lon Chaney as a legless man whose criminal mind has made him a master of the Barbary Coast underworld. Tickets are $15.
