Sahlima Productions Completes About Nelson, Film on how Child Trafficking is an Attack on our Basic Humanity

(October 2021 – Los Angeles, CA) About Nelson is about one child's history with child trafficking, and how a child's life can be changed. The film follows the story of Nelson, a seven year old American boy, who manages to escape his captors with the help of another victim. Having escaped, he begins to experience the simple joys of childhood again. Additionally, he finds an advocate and protector in his teacher Solange, who is determined to make him safe. The film is about two realities: child trafficking and what individuals can do to help.

About Nelson was directed by Award-Winning, accomplished actress/writer/producer Sahlima, who also portrays SOLANGE, Nelson's teacher, who will stop at nothing to keep Nelson safe.

Sahlima Productions' mission is to lend a united voice to the diverse global community, by sharing its powerful, relatable stories, and build awareness of this issue in the global film audience.

"Child trafficking is an attack on our basic humanity and should be a concern for every community.  Traffickers enslave their victims by force and sell them for sex, forced labor, and other forms of abuse. A shocking majority of the suspects are family members and people they trust. As a filmmaker, I feel an obligation to bring this offense to light in a way that shows us what personal dignity, caring and collective action can mean. About Nelson needs to be seen by everyone. We can shed light on this desecration of childhood and give voice to those who need it. First we have to know what is happening.  Then we can act. Child trafficking turns complacency into criminality against those who cannot fight back. Please support us. We would be honored to have you join us.”

Sahlima Productions was able to complete the entire project despite the challenges of the pandemic, safeguarding the cast and crew by adhering to CDC and union guidelines pertaining to testing, social distancing, masks at all times, daily temperature checks, and frequent use of hand sanitizer.

The completed film will now be submitted to top national festivals that are all about supporting quality films that depict the reality of our global society, and help make a difference in humanity.

About Nelson recently won BEST SHORT from the Boston Screenplay Awards, and BEST SHORT SCREENPLAY from the New Hope Film Festival.

Sahlima also has several social impact driven related projects in development.

Sabrina Percario: Producer with Touch A Life Productions presents Living The Dream”, Feature Film Inspired by Multiple Life Events

(August 2021; Los Angeles, CA) Multiple award-winning actress and producer, Sabrina Percario, has been collaborating as lead producer with Touch A Life Productions.

Touch A Life Productions was founded to inspire humanity. Sabrina, along with Raja Deka, are changing lives through their work, and currently have multiple films and TV series in development. 

Their film Be(lie)f was selected at the Short Film Corner at Cannes 2021. Be(lie)f is the story of a newly promoted detective, who is assigned a murder case involving the death of a young black man, but he soon realizes his own personal beliefs may obstruct his quest for justice.

On Be(lie)f Sabrina observes: “Quentin Lee Murphy and I produced Be(lie)f to bring awareness to two very important issues in this country: gun regulation and racism. We’re proud of the script and the film's message. We're avid supporters of independent filmmaking.”

Quentin Lee Murphy adds: “Without Sabrina from Touch A Life Productions, I wouldn’t be able to have made this film happen.”

Sabrina is also producing Living The Dream, a feature in which she will also be starring, along with writer Guile Branco, Bella Silverstein, and Raja Deka.

Living The Dream is the story of the struggle of a determined woman on her journey to achieve her lifetime dream of becoming an actress. Inspired by multiple life events.

“The purpose of Living The Dream is to share stories of foreigners who came to America searching to live their dreams. We wanna bring awareness to the struggle of being from abroad, and trying to work in the entertainment business.  

We’re also bringing in veteran director Teresa Lampreia who worked at Globo TV, the biggest TV network in Brazil.

As a lead producer at Touch A Life Productions, I feel honored and blessed to work with Raja Deka. We both share the same goal and mission in life, which is to touch people’s hearts with inspiring and uplifting stories.

Our goal is to see all walks of life globally leaving the theaters after experiencing our films realizing there is a warrior within each one of them with specific purpose.

Were all about lifting humanity and planting seeds through our stories, which are already changing lives, and will inspire generations by reminding each individual of their own courage and all we're capable of despite life's challenges.”

Sabrina has several other projects in development with Touch A Life Productions. More information on those projects will be coming soon.
