"No More Chains: The Documentary" lifts the veil on the secret struggles of women, from societal pressures to perform under duress to the hidden pain millions of women carry from traumatic life events. Profiling eleven women who pushed through extreme pain along the way to becoming some of the most successful women in a diverse cross-section of industries.

No More Chains: The Documentary profiles eleven powerhouse women as they peel back layers of pain, fear, and shame from addictions, loss, homelessness, parental abandonment, abusive relationships and an HIV diagnosis. These powerful "awakening" stories of tragedy turned triumph are shared with the goal of inspiring then empowering audiences to release their own chains.

A compilation of first-person narratives, childhood reenactments and expert interviews, the documentary is an extension of the book anthology by the same name with the foreword by Darrin Dewitt Henson and afterword by Abiola Abrams.

The film features an impressive cast of thought-leaders including Paul C. Brunson, Patrice C. Washington, Abiola Abrams, and influential women-in-business. It is directed by James Waiter Rapelyea and written and produced by Ari Squires and distributed by SheEO Publishing.

Birth of a Movement - Trailer

In 1915, African American newspaper editor and civil rights activist William Monroe Trotter waged a battle against D.W. Griffith’s notoriously Ku Klux Klan-friendly blockbuster The Birth of a Nation, which unleashed a fight still raging today about race relations and representation, and the power and influence of Hollywood. Birth of a Movement features commentary from Spike Lee, Reginald Hudlin, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and DJ Spooky (who created a new score and remix of the Griffith film), and numerous clips from the technically groundbreaking but racially astounding epic.

ONE VOTE. A Film By Christine Woodhouse. Official Trailer.

At a moment of unprecedented cynicism about the political process, One Vote bears hopeful witness to the humanity and rich diversity of American voters, and to the unsung stories that comprise our exercise of democracy. The characters of One Vote include the charismatic owner of the last tavern polling place in the US, an Alaskan family that travels miles of snow-covered roads by dogsled to reach their polling place, an iconic American investor (Warren Buffett) who devotes his Election Day to transporting voters in Omaha needing a ride to vote, a gospel-singing physician who heals and empowers disenfranchised citizens in rural South Carolina, and a former felon, casting an emotional vote in Kentucky for the first time since his right to vote was restored. Their stories connect us with the struggles of generations past, as well as voters' dreams for the future. More info: www.onevote.us #OneVote
