Atlanta, GA / October 20, 2023 / ZOE Films, Inc. / —   Zoe Films, Inc. Founder, Victoria lynn Weston makes her directorial debut with the film short, “Free Lover” and proudly introduces it to film festival audiences.

“Free Lover” is a true story of courage, passion, and betrayal.  Victoria Woodhull was motivated by a childhood vision to pursue the US presidency, but exposing the secrets of a prominent preacher leads to disastrous consequences. The year is 1870 and Victoria Woodhull is the first woman to be nominated to run for US President. She campaigned on a platform of “free love and equal rights for women and men.” Woodhull pioneered feminism and sexual liberation at a time when women didn’t even have the right to vote.

“Free Lover” aims to mesmerize audiences with Ms. Weston’s unique storytelling and captivating characters.  Award-winning Atlanta actress, Christina Leidel plays the role of Victoria Woodhull, an ambitious and bold woman who dared to tell the truth in a world dominated by men.

“Free Lover” is the culmination of 25 years of research and passion for me, “ says Ms. Weston. “It was my astrologer who initially introduced Victoria Woodhull’s story to me.  He not only predicted that I would be the first to produce a documentary on Victoria Woodhull.  He also predicted that I would produce and direct the first film on the life of Victoria Woodhull. I am excited to share a dramatic glimpse into Victoria Woodhull’s life with the world.”

With her film short “Free Lover”, Ms. Weston aims to impress both film festival audiences and industry insiders who are eager to see her work on the big screen. She has submitted her film to several prestigious film festivals and hopes to create a strong buzz around her unique vision and style. Her goal is to secure funding to produce a feature film, based on her screenplay, which expands on the themes and characters of “Free Lover”.

“Free Lover” will not only leave a lasting impression on audiences but will leave them wanting to know more about the fascinating life of Victoria Woodhull,” says Ms. Weston.  “Woodhull came from nothing. She was barely educated. Woodhull went from being a psychic reader in a traveling medicine show to becoming the first female stockbroker, newspaper publisher, the first woman to address Congress, and the first woman to run for US President.

“Free Lover” is based on Ms. Weston’s PBS featured documentary, “America’s Victoria, Remembering Victoria Woodhull” which featured enlightening interviews with Gloria Steinem and historians.  Actress Kate Capshaw performed the voice-over of Woodhull’s own words.   It’s been widely screened at universities, and colleges and has been distributed in Canada.

As part of this project, Zoe Films will also create NFTs (non-fungible tokens) of film clips, frames, and stills, which will be available for purchase on OpenSea, a platform for digital art and collectibles. NFTs are unique and verifiable digital assets that can represent anything from art to music to games.
