MEET SONIA NONA, NOMINATED FOR THE UNOFEX INTERNATIONAL FILM AWARDS 2020 WITH HER MOVIE - The Perfect Autistic

BIOGRAPHY 

Sonia Nona (UNOFEX Member) dreamed of making cinema from a very young age. Born in Boulogne, she spent her childhood in a small town in the Yvelines until her 20s when she went to Paris. She started a long walk to make her first professional short film at 18 years old. The American chain AMC was looking for foreign spin-offs from their series "THE WALKING DEAD".

 

Sonia wrote and edited for the most part alone, her project "THE HUNTING DEAD". Despite her intense efforts to participate in the call launched by the AMC chain, she failed to finalize it on time. With a limited budget, the participation of volunteers and thanks to her passion, the new director will go to the end of her film which will be screened in a movie theater, in preview.

Having obtained her screenwriting diploma, she co-wrote for other artists in order to make their own short film. One day, she finds at the bottom of her drawer, a story she had written long before "THE HUNTING DEAD" and which was close to her heart.

"The Perfect Autistic" (UNOFEX Nominated) is the story of an autistic child locked in his room who becomes a hacker and makes a dramatic discovery about the intentions of the highest placed in our world. The young director takes her script and rewrites it to finally realize it.

"I wanted to look into the case of autistic children who have long been considered apart. During my teenage career, I met two who moved me enormously."

Sonia’s activity extends from scriptwriting, assistant director, director, editor of her own projects and sometimes those of others. She has made and edited a few clips and hopes one day to be able to work with producers and directors because Sonia has a thousand stories more fascinating than each other in her famous drawer ready to be.
