Don't know who Victoria Woodhull is? She was once the most famous woman in America AND she is the subject of our next documentary!
Kelly Boyer Sagert will write our script and Director Peter Huston of
will be handling the filming duties. Huston calls this "... a great
story." and Sagert says that she "... has been fascinated by
Victoria Woodhull for decades and is thrilled with the opportunity to
delve into Woodhull's rich and complex life."
Victoria was the first woman to push her way onto the political stage. She ran a newspaper and became a stockbroker. As Victoria put it, I endeavor to make the most of everything. And thats a goal we all should try to achieve she sure did!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had to make a number of changes to our plans for the documentary about this phenomenal female. Mainly, we had to scale back the scope of the project. We had to cancel our efforts to find funding through foundation grants. Instead we counted on the continued support of our audience (like YOU!) and used the funds from our murder mystery fundraiser from January of 2020. AND... YOU did it! Thanks for helping us to tell Victoria's story.
During the fall of 2023, we were finally able to begin filming! Kate Luke was cast to play Victoria and Debra Rose provided narration for this remarkable story. Aspen Bott portrayed young Victoria. Hopefully, the completed film will be ready for screening by spring, 2024. Be sure to check this page for regular updates.
