"No Way Out But One" is an independently produced documentary film that tells the story of Holly Collins, the first American to ever be granted asylum by the government of the Netherlands as a result of domestic violence. Believing she had no other choice, Ms. Collins kidnapped her own children to save them from a life of abuse. She left everyone and everything she knew behind and became an International fugitive, hunted by the FBI. The film also examines the much larger issue of the family court system, and what many feel is its failure to adequately protect children from physical and sexual abuse. Post production on the film has just finished.
The role of producer/writer involved raising funds, developing a web site and press materials, conducting extensive research, collecting records including a successful FOIA request for FBI records, budgeting, and field producing.
