In March of 2013, Visual Popcorn (formerly Corporate Creative Film) was commissioned by Women In Distress of Broward County, Inc. to do a mini documentary film for their Starfish Luncheon. Since this was our first time working with a non-profit, we knew it would be a great opportunity to make a film about a great cause, “empowerment.”
It takes a great deal of courage and strength for the mothers, fathers (they help men too), and children to empower themselves to leave, and stay out of, an abusive situation. Women In Distress empowers people to live a life free of domestic abuse. So for this film we gathered Women In Distress participants from all walks of life, and asked them about their journey with empowerment, and this is what we got. Enjoy!
