Angela Shelton is the most amazing woman I know besides my mom. She made me laugh and cry and I'm a guy. I'm going to treat women better all because of Angela Shelton
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
Acclaimed screenwriter, author, actor, comedian and model, Angela Shelton, left Hollywood to make her directing debut by traveling America interviewing other Angela Shelton's to make Searching for Angela Shelton, http://www.searchingforangelashelton.com
The multi-award winning film puts a spotlight on sexual abuse and domestic violence and started a grassroots movement of healing for abuse survivors worldwide. Ellen Bass, author of The Courage to Heal, described the film as, "An inspiring, heart-breaking, and fascinating cross-country journey by a survivor and filmmaker who set out to survey American women through the lens of every woman she could find who shared her name. Though she takes on serious issues, Angela Shelton is joyous, irreverent, funny, and feisty."
Due to the huge following of her film Angela created the SurvivalManual.com as an online magazine that inspires and empowers all survivors of abuse to heal and lead joyful lives.
After inspiring a movement to shed light on sexual abuse across the United States in 2004, Searching for Angela Shelton left film critics, survivors and activists asking for more. In response, Angela recently re-released her self-edited, life-changing film. With exclusive features including: additional footage, a new director's commentary, Spanish subtitles and closed-captioning, the re-released version of Searching for Angela Shelton delivers the same powerful message in an enhanced format.
Shelton not only reaches women, but also men, "Angela Shelton is the most amazing woman I know besides my mom. She made me laugh and cry and I'm a guy. I'm going to treat women better all because of Angela Shelton," commented comic Jamie Kennedy.
The re-released version of the film can viewed at no cost on Snag Films, where it is currently the number one rated film.
