TORONTO, August 17, 2021- The multi-award-winning feature-length documentary BROKEN VOWSStories of Separation takes you into lives of women, their stories, and the tales of those caught in the crossfire of marriage breakdown. Directed by award-winning director Sunnie McFadden- Curtis, the film is a project from her production company, benchboy productions inc. 

 

BROKEN VOWS shows why separation can be one of the most psychologically exhausting times

in a woman’s life. It explains there is often an expectation to make life-altering decisions under

extreme duress and adapt quickly. BROKEN VOWS is about a universal theme with global appeal, yet it provides solace to individuals who need to know they are not alone anymore.

 

“I would like audiences of BROKEN VOWS: Stories of Separation to have a better

understanding and perspective of the roller coaster ride separation can take you on and find

solace in the idea that you can walk through the darkness to the light,” says McFadden- 

Curtis. 

 

Black female director, filmmaker, producer, actor, and above all, a dedicated social advocate,

McFadden-Curtis fills BROKEN VOWS with diverse stories and the myriad of challenging

realities, through firsthand, intimate testimonials, including her own.

 

Through sharing my own experience of separation and those of others, I hope to illuminate a dark

subject rarely discussed openly,” explains McFadden-Curtis.

 

The pandemic has aggravated separation, isolation, from family and friends, loss of income, economic instability, disruption of regular routines, and imposed quarantines–which can force individuals to stay home together—increasing marital chaos, domestic violence,, and separation.

 

Committed to providing hope, McFadden-Curtis has created a digital resource BROKEN VOWS: 

Stories of Separation “The Resource” to the documentary, which offers real resources she

hopes will help women move forward upon separation.

 

The digital Resource will address the gnawing question: When a marriage ends, where do you

begin? The resource can be purchased as individual volumes or in its entirety:
