Producing my first Feature Length Doc/ Kick-starter

Yes it's true. It centers on the sorry of my dear friend Ray, who at the age of seven discovered this mother murdered by his father. His father was incarnated and then deported back to Thailand. Ray is now a grown man and is looking to reframe this experience in the hopes of finding some healing. Domestic violence is a scourge on our country - "According to the FBI, 11,766 American women were killed by their husbands or boyfriends between Sept. 10, 2001, and June 6, 2012. To put that into perspective, fewer U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan and Iraq combined during the same period. A 2011 Supplementary Homicide Report released by the FBI stated that 61 percent of female homicides were “wives or intimate acquaintances of their killers,” and that more than 15 percent were killed by their husband or intimate acquaintance during the course of an argument."

We see the sensationalized media stories in the wake of these murders, but what happens to the family and friends in the years after such a horrific trauma? How do they heal? Is it possible to forgive and what would that even look like? There is a massive lack of media about and in support of this vital part of these stories. Help us to change that.
