<a href="http://findingangelashelton.com" target="_blank" style="color:#c08434;"><b>Angela Shelton</b></a> is an activist, artist, and superhero. She is an actress, writer, model, dancer, and director. She first brought her life to the screen with the award-winning movie, “Tumbleweeds” that she co-wrote based on her first novel. The film won the filmmaker’s trophy at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival and brought the lead actress, Janet McTeer, an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe win. Angela then received outstanding reviews for her adaptation of Kaye Gibbon’s novel Charms for the Easy Life, starring Gena Rowlands, and began a screenwriting career in Hollywood. <br><br> For her directing debut, Angela traveled the United States interviewing other Angela Sheltons for her documentary “Searching for Angela Shelton.” Her goal was to survey women in the US, but as she began interviewing other Angela Sheltons, she found that 70% had been victims of rape, childhood sexual assault, and/or domestic violence. Angela’s survey of women becomes a journey of self-discovery when she decides to confront her own past and her father—on Father’s Day. The Angela Sheltons complete the journey by teaching the filmmaker about the power of the human spirit, no matter what your name is. Angela has quickly become recognized as a hero and become a public speaker on the subject of trauma, recovery and resiliency. Her mission is to inspire and empower people to lead joyful lives no matter what has happened to them. <br><br> For more information, please visit <a href="http://findingangelashelton.com" target="_blank" style="color:#c08434;"><b>findingangelashelton.com </b></a>
