Good News Documentary Review-“Shaholly”

Reviewed By:  Jerome Fitts

The spirit in which top fashion model Shaholly Ayers details her path to stardom in the short documentary Shaholly, is exactly what The Cacique Film Festival Series definition of a “Good News Documentary” is.  Award winning director Wojeciech Lorenc did a near perfect job of highlighting Ms. Ayers personality that compliments her stunning beauty. The story itself is something we encourage our readers to patiently watch. The thing of it is, you may find yourself watching it over and over. This is turning adversity into triumph.

As a society we all want to be in a place and time when we are not  judged from the first sight of one another, but unfortunately the world has not developed into that place- just yet. Hopefully this documentary, produced by Mary O’Connell, could lead us to taking another look at our ethics.

After watching the documentary for a second time, we (WJ) found ourselves searching for more information on Ms. Ayers and by no one surprise, her story is a continued journey. It is exciting and inspirational following her steps toward building onto her dreams.  Shaholly Ayers is a master piece of beauty in her own right and the word special has to be replaced by an adjective that hasn’t been written yet.

Our take on the film is that; opportunities taken for granted should be withdrawn from those who think they are entitled to it. Within the film Ms. Ayers mentions the doors that were closed by certain shallow thinkers and how her tenacity to fulfilling her childhood dream eventually became a reality. It should be noted that there was never a mention of self pity or acknowledgement of her disability that withheld her from overcoming those obstacles.

Watch the documentary! It takes less than 5 minutes to feel good about the rest of your day and on one those worse days when you are not counting your blessings, do yourself some justice by watching it again.

Remarkable “Good News” documentary- WJ
