Alison Teal, Time Magazine’s Female Indiana Jones, sets off to the coast of West Africa for a “surfari” when she suddenly finds herself on a wild and comedic quest that takes her from the middle of a volcano in the Canary Islands to the castle of King Henry II in France, where she uncovers the incredible TRUE STORY behind her favorite childhood fairy tale – Beauty and the Beast.
DON’T JUDGE PEOPLE:
My Alison’s Adventure film series educates through entertainment. Today’s media is bombarded with examples of cyberbullying and physical hatred. This story imparts the lesson that we must not judge a person by their appearance.
Like many little girls, I looked up to Belle, our heroine of the story, since she is strong, smart, and driven. With my film and photo series, I hope to inspire women to persevere on their own path to success and happiness. Part of that is not letting the negativity and judgment of others prevent them from achieving their greatest dreams.
HOW WAS THE FILM MADE?
As a one-woman show I wrote, produced, directed, edited and starred in the film with an entirely volunteer local cast and crew!
IS THIS REALLY A TRUE STORY?
Yes! It is challenging to research and prove the specific events and players behind a legend that took place in the 16th century but I did my best. This film is a merger of historical facts and recreated visual imagery to entertain and educate the entire family.
Many mahalos to EVERYONE who made this dream a reality.
