Kelly Martinez is a strong, articulate woman with a cautionary story to tell. It is a story the world needs to hear.
Kelly served as a surrogate mother for three different couples, and reached out to us when she was threatened with financial ruin following her last surrogacy. It turns out that each of her surrogacy journeys was fraught in its own way.
Each journey had a price to pay.
Kelly's story exemplifies everything that is wrong with surrogacy.
Kelly has spoken in New York at our "Trading on the Female Body" gathering, at the United Nations as part of the 61st Commission on the Status of Women, and even in Madrid, Spain, to numerous media outlets, to a large crowd attending a film screening, and to many, many members of the Spanish Parliament.
We want for even more people to hear her story, so we are making a feature-length documentary on her.
We need to go to her home in South Dakota to finish filming her, then we need to script, edit, and release the film.
Take a look at the rewards or give simply because this is for a good cause. Please help us tell the world Kelly's story.
Risks and challenges
This is our fifth feature-length film, and eighth film overall. There are always challenges in filmmaking, but as an experienced and award-winning filmmaking team, we are adept at overcoming them and pressing ahead to final release of the film.
Not only have our films won awards like Best Documentary at the California Independent Film Festival, our films have screened and sold all over the world. They have been translated into Spanish, French, Italian, and Japanese.
We have the knowledge and experience to do it again, but we need your help with the resources.
