Filmmaker Nicole Conn Talks Stunning New Film (AUDIO)

Produced by Charlotte Robinson

In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with filmmaker Nicole Conn about her new award-winning must-see feature film “More Beautiful For Having Been Broken” that will be released in partnership with Vision Films and Wolfe Video beginning April 7th. “More Beautiful For Having Been Broken” is a story about a distraught FBI agent suspended from her job and struggling with the death of her mother who escapes to the small mountain town she use to visit as a child. She is befriended by a special needs boy who possesses the extraordinary gift of healing others through his unbroken spirit and unique outlook on life. The film stars Australian actress, Zoë Ventoura (Home and Away, Packed to the Rafters), Kayla Radomski of “So You Think You Can Dance” fame and an amazing performance by 11-year-old Cale Ferrin who was diagnosed with Fanconi Anemia a rare genetic disease often marked by congenital defects and short stature. Joining the stellar cast are Bruce Davison (Star Trek / X-Men), French Stewart (3rd Rock from the Sun), Brooke Elliott (Drop Dead Diva), Harley Jane Kozak (Parenthood), Gaby Christian (South of Nowhere), Kay Lenz, Wally Kurth and Gabrielle Baba-Conn (Conn’s real-life daughter) who is making her feature debut. “More Beautiful For Having Been Broken" is very personal to Conn as it pays homage to Conn’s daughter and in particular to her son Nicholas who has special needs and is medically fragile. We talked to Nicole about what she hopes to accomplish with this film and how she and her family are adjusting to these challenging times.

Iconic filmmaker Nicole Conn paved the way for lesbian themed cinema with her cult classic “Claire of the Moon” and also for her acclaimed features “Elena Undone” which boasts the longest screen kiss in cinema history and “A Perfect Ending”. Nicole understands the need for using her talent to change hearts and minds and hopes that “More Beautiful For Having Been Broken” will deliver a much needed message about our special needs community as well as our LGBTQ community and provide encouragement and healing in these difficult times.

This film is exquisite both visually and emotionally…. Nicole injected light, humor and love into the film through the eyes of a sweet special needs child giving the audience a new way of thinking about whether the description special needs may also mean special insight. The movie is a turn on from every aspect.
