ANASTÁCIA is an epic drama focusing on human trafficking.  It's core storyline is inspired by the historical book Hanging Captain Gordon and the book's presentation of the life and trial of the only American slave trader executed for his heinous actions as a slave ship captain and buyer/seller of slaves.  This occurred during the early months of Abraham Lincoln's presidency.

In parallel to the Captain Gordon storyline is the life of one of his captives, ANASTÁCIA.  Her character is inpired in part by St. Escrava Anastácia, the patron saint of many women of Rio de Janeiro. Gordon in fact managed to escape the Brazilians.  In this story he takes 16-year-old Anastácia with him because of her value, and sells her into indentured service as a domestic servent in the U.S. 
 

Also in development as a limited series for streaming, Lebanon: A Message to the World.
