This film screening is the first fundraiser for the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation, which is hosting this special movie screening of “Hava Nagila (The Movie)” at the Varsity Theater. The Be Loud! Sophie Foundation was created to honor the memory of Sophie Steiner, a Chapel Hill teenager whose life was cut short by cancer. Even as Sophie was undergoing the challenge of her own treatment at UNC Hospitals, she recognized how much support her family had and how their close proximity to the hospital made this difficult time a little easier. She worried about families who didn’t have these resources, and it was her wish to raise money to support adolescent and young adult cancer patients and their families at UNC Hospitals. Sophie came up with the idea to show this film, created by a close family friend, as a fundraiser for this cause. A joyful celebration of family and community, the film is a wonderful tribute to Sophie’s beautiful life.
