In Profile Kristofer Thomas in favour of Sonita

Sonita, in UK cinemas now

We asked you what you thought of Sonita - here Kristofer Thomas RESPONDS...

Name: Kristofer Thomas / @KRSTHMS

Age: 22

Currently: I am an Editorial Assistant / Architecture & Design Journalist at Sleeper Magazine and a film columnist for The 405.

Last film I saw: Los Angeles Plays Itself (Thom Anderson, 2003)

I recommend Sonita: For anyone remotely interested in the mechanics behind documentary film-making, and how the medium conveys and depicts information to an audience through a single figure, Sonita is an essential new release. It's very rewarding, and a great story.

You should see Sonita because: Apart from having one of the most magnetic central characters in recent memory, Sonita feels wholly relevant and important in terms of a range of the social issues we are currently seeing across the planet, not just the issue at its core. 

Sonita is a rare win for the good guys, with a fantastic soundtrack and a smartly constructed exploration of the director's role as much as it is the subject's.

If you liked Sonita, you should watch: One.Two.One (Mania Akbari, 2011)

Sonita is screening in cinemas all over the country, when you've seen it, why not tell us what you thought in the comments!
