The Stoning of Soraya M. is playing at the Glenwood Arts Theater in Overland Park, Kansas. That’s the only place in the entire metro showing this film, which is a shame. In fact, the only other place to see it in all of Missouri and Kansas would be the Tivoli Theater in St. Louis.
Watch the preview. See the movie.
Incidentally, I emailed the Ragtag Cinema in Columbia, Missouri (my current city of residence) to ask if they would be screening this film. No reply.
I don’t want to jump to conclusions, but perhaps they simply forgot to mention in the high-minded rhetoric of their mission statement that they’re only interested in left wing cinema. That’s cool – but just have the guts to say it if that’s the case, and don’t dress up your cause as simply being about independent, quality art and the like.
Show me I’m wrong. Show Soraya.
