SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA, April 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Angelena Bonet, of Crystal Heart Productions, has won the prestigious ‘Best Australian Director’ award at The Best Director Awards in London. The award was given for Angelena’s inspiring autobiographical documentary short film, “Change The World”. Her film features exceptional visuals and a powerful message for the world conveyed through her film and soundtrack. Bonet’s documentary film, which she produced in its entirety, has won 150 film festival awards worldwide. The short film recently screened in Tokyo, Seoul, New York, Munich and Rome. She has been the recipient of many awards including the ‘Humanitarian Award’ at The Jane Austen International Film Festival and the ‘Human Spirit Award’ at the DOCS Without Borders Film Festival in The Bahamas.
Bonet has also produced a biopic documentary trilogy feature film series consisting of “Angelena: Change The World”, “Angelena: Heart Of The Matter” and “Angelena: Light At The End Of The Tunnel” which are available to rent or buy on Vimeo. A former Australian supermodel and actress, she experienced two life changing tragedies, which she has chronicled in her documentaries. Her soulmate and fiancé of three days, Erick Deeby, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away in August 2007. He had written and recorded instrumental pieces of music for her between 2005 and 2007. Bonet then wrote the lyrics and melody to his music after his devastating death and during her time of deepest grief. Then on May 26, 2012, she was a victim of a violent attack and was kidnapped and gang-raped but miraculously survived the attempted murder in Melbourne, Australia. Suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a consequence of the heinous crime, orchestrated by someone that she knew and trusted. The music she co-wrote with Deeby has become the soundtrack for her films and also won numerous ‘Best Original Soundtrack’ and ‘Best Film Score’ awards. She promised him whilst in a coma that she would finish their special project and thirteen years later she has received accolades from every corner of the globe.
Now ready to share her story, Angelena, recently released “Change The World” on YouTube to make it available to everyone for free. She realised that many women and girls who could benefit from her voice and be inspired by her journey may be at a financial disadvantage and wanted to help them. Domestic violence has been hidden for millennia and has risen exponentially since Covid-19 began and many victims are in lockdown with their perpetrators. Angelena hopes to reach those women and give them hope and assure them there is light at the end of the tunnel and they are definitely not alone. No longer can this sickness within our society be hidden and ignored. It’s a time of reckoning and humanity has the opportunity to heal and find a more harmonious way of being. She is honored to be instrumental in creating public awareness by being transparent with her own experiences and thus encouraging other women to stand up and speak out also. She is an example that one can not only survive, but thrive. As a global ambassador for women and girls, Angelena is a voice for those who cannot speak, or those struggling to heal. Now empowered by the crime that almost took her life, Angelena is a warrior in the fight to end violence against women.
