Fighting the Destruction of Families!

Dear Members & Supporters,

We have some very exciting news. As many of you know, the directors of the documentary project, End of Love, were here a few months ago conducting interviews, filming calls being handled on the Support Line and participated in a WAR group meeting which also included some filming.

During a meeting, at the close of the visit, we were advised that WAR is the type of advocacy they are looking for and with that in mind they would like to follow us for a year. The full crew is scheduled to come back in the winter and do some more filming.

Deb Ellis and Alexandra Halkin met when they were involved in the independent film community in Chicago. In the 1990’s Ellis and Halkin collaborated on a documentary short, Skin Deep: Norplant in Poor Communities, distributed for many years by Women Make Movies. 

Deb Ellis (Co-Director) is a documentary filmmaker whose work includes the Academy Award short-listed film, Howard Zinn: You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train. This film was released theatrically on over 100 screens across the country, has had several multi-year broadcast contracts, and is still actively distributed on DVD and streaming video by First Run Features.  Deb is currently finishing a film about Iraq and Afghan War veterans AWOL in Canada, Peace Has No Borders. Deb is Associate Professor in the Film and Television Studies Program at the University of Vermont.

Alexandra Halkin (Co-Director) founded the Chiapas Media Project, an award winning bi-national organization that has trained over 200 indigenous men and women in video production in Chiapas and Guerrero, Mexico. A Guggenheim Fellowship and Fulbright recipient, Alexandra has produced five documentary shorts in Mexico, many of them award winning and her work has been broadcast and screened at film and video festivals worldwide. In 2010, she founded the Americas Media Initiative (AMI) a non-profit organization that works with Cuban filmmakers living in Cuba.

Their work is funded by your generous donations. Please support this and ask others to do the same. Whatever we can do to bring awareness to our issue is worth every dime we give.
