The film was completed through an affiliation with Professor Scoon’s film company, True Visions, Inc., the FSU College of Motion Picture Arts Torchlight Center Studios as well as The Center for the Advancement of Human Rights. The project also received funding support from women physicians in the Tallahassee community and a grant from Schlesinger Library at Harvard University.
