Angela wrote and directed The Eagle and The Albatross, coming out in 2018, after Heart, Baby! Starring K-Pop star, Amber Liu, it’s about an orphaned half-Korean girl who finds herself in small town America with her only living relative. She seeks out a mentor to help with the only thing she loves – golf. The best player in town, the widowed optometrist, takes her under his wing, sending them on a journey to face their biggest fears, losing loved ones – and their game. The only problem is, he has three months to live.
Angela’s first feature that she wrote, directed and produced is Heart, Baby!
Heart, Baby! is based on the true story of a Tennessee convict who was known in the early 1980s throughout the Tennessee prison system as an unbeatable boxer. He was offered an opportunity at freedom in exchange for fighting for the USA in the 1984 Olympic games, but shocked everyone when he refused to go.
Angela’s directing debut was the multi-award winning documentary, Searching for Angela Shelton.
Searching for Angela Shelton changed the lives of thousands of childhood trauma survivors and led to appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Live, 48 Hours Investigates, NPR, Lifetime Television, and the cover of the New York Times.
Searching for Angela Shelton is too important, too meaningful, too touching, TOO TERRIFIC to been seen casually. From the first frame to the last I was in turn riveted, weepy, drained, shattered, hopeful …and plenty of other emotions in between.
Angela is one remarkable, talented lady. It took enormous courage, persistence, and honesty to pull this off. Most importantly, she managed to keep her sense of humour, and at the same time show a willingness to forgive. What an unbeatable combo! This film should be shown in every home, in every country in the world. Bravo!
