EAGLE AND THE ALBATROSS

Eagle is Angela’s second feature that she made in honor of her mentors, the late Jake Eberts, and her golf coach and friend, Dr. Stuart Kaufman. After Heart, Baby! ripped our hearts after, she and her crew wanted to make a fun comedy.

When an orphaned half Korean girl finds herself in small town America with her only living relative, she seeks out a mentor to help with the only things she loves - golf. The best player in town, the widowed optometrist, takes her under his wing, sending them on a journey to face their fear of losing loved ones and their game. The only problem is, he has three months to live.

HEART, BABY!

HEART, BABY! is Angela’s first feature that she wrote, directed, and produced. Spoiler alert: it’s not really a boxing movie. It might just rip your heart out and put it back together again.

Heart, Baby! is the TRUE STORY of George and Doc, best friends from reform school to life in prison where George becomes an unbeatable prison boxer, with songwriter Doc as his cornerman and Crystal, his devoted Christian Transgender cellmate. When George is offered freedom to fight in the 1984 Olympics he shocks everyone by turning it down, sending Doc, Crystal, and other inmates on a journey to discover the true meaning of friendship, faith, and heart.

SEARCHING FOR ANGELA SHELTON

This documentary was Angela’s directorial debut and shifted the course of her life. It also is the reason there is a large gap in her IMDB page, because she went on the road for a decade helping raise money for rape crisis centers, child advocacy centers and domestic violence shelters.

To this day, this film is utilized around the world as a tool to help break the silence and begin breaking the cycle of abuse and violence.

In the uplifting and multiple award-winning documentary, Searching for Angela Shelton, filmmaker Angela Shelton drives around the United States surveying other Angela Sheltons. She discovers that 70% of the Angela Sheltons she speaks to are survivors of rape, childhood sexual abuse and/or domestic violence.
