Moving Gears: Return to Zero

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The news we’ve been so excitedly waiting for!

Rather than limiting the scope of the film to a smaller number of theaters, the team has moved gears and are instead working with Lifetime cable television network to have the film accessible to a much, much, much larger audience.

Rather than focusing on making the biggest dollar, their focus is on sending the most accessible message.  Make no mistake, the gift of this, is ours.

There’s been talk since the beginning of the making of this film, of what the message of this movie will do to others, for us. And I want to address that, so let me say it again: the talk has been, what this movie will do to others, for us.

It’s true, a film of this magnitude will surely break silence and cross borders and unhinge taboos and open avenues of healing that have never before been created.

But as the excitement is mounting and the Lifetime premiere date is nearing (May 17!), I want to invite you, to pause, for just a moment.

To switch gears about what this movie will do and for whom.

For a very sobering moment, I want to invite you, to think, to truly think, what this movie will do for you.

For you.

To see a full, feature length film, broaching the subjects, shining on them through your own bright, television set, the subjects that have been hidden in your own heart. Tucked. Maybe shoved in there. Maybe by others. Maybe by you.

This film, it is a whisper of love. A candle, flickering gentle warmth into the coldest, darkest shadows of your soul. It whispers, that you are seen, and that even in the seeing, you are not mocked, scorned or shamed. You will be validated. You will be encouraged. You will be inspired.


Get Together!

  • journals and pens


Things you might want to include in your planning:

  • time after the movie to talk and reflect
