Made at the UCLA Film School in 1981, this was the first cinematic collaboration of Nina Menkes with her sister Tinka. The film documents, in a strange and very beautiful way, a serious illness suffered by Tinka as experienced by her sister Nina. In the movie, Tinka plays Nina - not for the last time. A Soft Warrior was selected as one of the top first projects made at UCLA that year, and was also presented at FILMEX, as well as many other Super-8-festivals.

This film is screened together with The Great Sadness of Zohara.
