Filmmaker To Launch A Transformative Mother-Daughter Documentary
Dearborn Heights, Michigan Oct 26, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – A groundbreaking documentary film, titled, ‘Beauty From Ashes: A Journey of Three Daughters,’ is set to release on Friday, Dec. 3, 2022 at 4 p.m., at the Automotive Hall of Fame Theatre: 21400 Oakwood Blvd., Dearborn, MI 48124. Doors will open at 3 p.m. Tickets are $30, and the event will include a Q&A with the producers following the screening.
‘Beauty From Ashes’ explores a topic that is rarely discussed: an intense depiction that explores complex relationships between mothers and daughters.
Executive Producer and Filmmaker, Nneka Owens, who is also a licensed therapist with a practice in Dearborn, MI, provides services for depression, anxiety, and blended families facing difficulties. She is well-known for providing relationship counseling with couples and families in her community. Years after opening her practice, Owens noticed an interesting trend that surprised her: many adult women experience fraught relationships with their mothers.
“I had an excellent relationship with my mother,” notes Owens. “It never occurred to me that so many women would face struggles with their mothers.” Her intrigue led to inspiration, and in 2018, the captivating stories of three women came to light in ‘Beauty From Ashes: A Journey of Three Daughters.’
Viewers will experience Evette K.’s story, a woman who received therapy at Nneka’s Detroit practice. She shares harrowing details of the verbal and sexual abuse she experienced without her mother’s protection.
As the oldest child of a drug-addicted single parent, viewers will hear about the neglect and self-image issues Cocoa suffered due to her mother’s addiction.
Valencia was born to a mother struggling with abuse, mental illness, and alcoholism. Enduring the same emotional challenges as her mother, including suicide attempts, Valencia shares her battle with abandonment issues. Her focus is to scale personal heights to give her children the life she never had.
Owens explains that the stories shared in ‘Beauty From Ashes,’ build a sense of community by allowing vulnerable mothers and daughters to know they are not alone.
“Through a grassroots effort on a global scale with partnerships from foundations and international organizations, we can push this conversation forward,” explains Owens. “We need to emphasize that we can help heal mother and daughter relationships.
The film’s powerful message demonstrates that, despite all odds, these women learn how to love, how to trust, and how to build healthier bonds.
