Who is Angela Shelton?
In the documentary Searching for Angela Shelton , filmmaker Angela Shelton journeys across theUnited States meeting other Angela Sheltons in an effort to survey women in America . She discovers that 24 out of the 40 Angela Sheltons she spoke to had been raped, beaten or molested. (now 28 out of 40) Then the filmmaker meets an Angela Shelton who tracks sexual predators and lives in the same town as the filmmaker’s father who molested her and her step siblings for years.
The filmmaker’s survey of women becomes a journey of self-discovery during which she decides to finally confront her own past and her father – on Father’s Day. The Angela Sheltons complete the journey by teaching the filmmaker about forgiveness, faith and the power of the human spirit, no matter what your name is.
(This movie in no way means that all Angela Sheltons are or were abused or that you shouldn’t name your child Angela Shelton. The name Angela Shelton was simply used as a vehicle by which to meet and survey women in America . 28 out of 40 were abused, 12 were not. Let the Angela Sheltons inspire all women to UNITE and stand up for their rights.)
