An Uplifting Story of Hope: Interview with “Sonnie” Director Sam Mirpoorian

Manny The Movie Guy

Filmmaker Sam Mirpoorian created a short documentary about the resilience of the human spirit.  The film is called “Sonnie” and it’s about Deon “Sonnie” Casey.  He’s a single father trying to provide a better life for his son.  The documentary follows him as he finds strength and solace hoping that things will soon get better.

I spoke with Mirpoorian about creating the documentary, meeting Sonnie, and the strenght of the human spirit.

“Sonnie” is now streaming on NBCLX.  Click here for more info.
