( 4UMF NEWS ) Heart Of A Woman’s All-Star Cast Announced:
Toni Newman’s critically-acclaimed Still I Rise has been receiving a lot of buzz since it was released. So much so chapter 7 (titled The Erotic Professionals) of her book has been turned into a feature film, Heart Of A Woman.
The film is about three very different individuals (Terri, Derrick, and Pamela) living in Los Angeles, and engaged to some degree or another in the sex industry. This powerful drama capitalizes on the ongoing struggle for understanding and survival. In a city that oftentimes takes no prisoners physically, emotionally and spiritually, the characters from Heart Of A Woman persevere.
The all-star cast for the film includes Angelica Ross, Rachel Sterling, Daniel Sobieray, Elisabeth and Leslie Jones. Like Newman’s book, Heart Of A Woman promotes equal rights and freedom for transgenders in the U.S.
Shooting is slated to begin in October.
