Writer, Producer, Director & Animated Filmmaker Kalia Love Jones (Nov. 2020)

*Kalia Love Jones is a young filmmaker who has taken the transformative words of former First Lady Michelle Obama to another level.

At just fourteen years old, she is now the writer, producer and director of an animated short called “The Power of Hope.” Kalia got the idea for the film when she was twelve.

Her parents supported the idea but encouraged her to earn her own money to finance her film.  Kalia rose to the challenge and a year later her film was complete thanks to the funds she acquired from recycling.
