This is the trailer from the award-winning documentary “Searching for Angela Shelton.” I enjoyed watching it and wanted to share it with you. It’s short but powerful. You can find out more about the film and Angela Shelton on the website www.SearchingforAngelaShelton.com. Thanks to Tim Fischer for sharing this.
Here’s a blurb about the film:
In the uplifting and multiple award-winning documentary, Searching for Angela Shelton, filmmaker Angela Shelton drives around the United States surveying other Angela Sheltons. She discovers that 24 out of the 40 Angela Sheltons she speaks to are survivors of rape, childhood sexual abuse and/or domestic violence. (The number jumped to 28 out of 40 when 4 more Angelas broke their silence after the movie was completed.) On her journey the filmmaker meets an Angela Shelton who tracks sexual predators and lives in the same town as the filmmaker’s father, who sexually abused her and her siblings for years.
You can find more of Angela Shelton’s videos on her website: AngelaShelton.com. She has a couple of interviews with author Charlotte Kasl, whose books include Many Roads, One Journey: Moving Beyond the 12 Steps and If the Buddha Got Stuck, both of which I enjoyed and found personally helpful. In one of the videos the two discuss trauma, addiction and the language of recovery. Very interesting.
