Dana's Story: Short Film Dallas VIP Premiere

Description

In recognition of Nation Human Trafficking Awareness Month. ALS Creations & So Nervy Films present Dana's Story: short film Dallas VIP premiere. Based on a true story, Dana's Story is the riveting tale of one little girl's struggle to overcome circumstances beyond her control. Dana Toussaint was born into a life of privilege; thanks to her father, a Haitian-born immigrant and notorious drug lord. Dana's mother; a materialistic southern belle from South Louisiana, is consumed by the good life as memories of her upbringing in an East New Orleans housing project become a distant memory. In spite of the similarities between the Haitian and Louisiana Creole cultures, the marriage unravels and the unthinkable occurs when Dana's father abruptly abandons the family. At the age of 12, Dana becomes the ultimate sacrifice and her mother, a heroin addict, brokers the deal. Meet & Greet 6-7p | Film Premiere 7-8p | Mix & Mingle 8-10p
