Angelina

A documentary about one woman’s humorous, raw and real journey through post-partum depression. When stand-up comedian, Angelina Spicer, became a mother her world started to crumble - so bad that she ended up in a psychiatric hospital for 10 days.

Grabbing Back

Fed up with Trump’s presidency, black women across America, like Jahana Hayes, are mobilizing to run for office and use their vote to change the course of our country! While they are a powerful force, we see that these formidable black women don’t necessarily have the support of the status quo Democratic Party. The documentary film/series “Grabbing Back” (working title) will shine a light on these trailblazing African American candidates and the galvanized voters who are getting off the sidelines to be heard, in the hopes of shifting the Trump trajectory and grabbing back the house in the 2018 midterm elections.
