Of Sentimental Value written & Execuitive Produced by Bestselling Author, FUMI HANCOCK Wins Dove Foundation "Family Approved" Seal

Dove Family-Approved
Recommended for
ages 12 and over




Dove Worldview:
"Of Sentimental Value" does a super job demonstrating the worth of every individual who lives on this planet. The film is unique in that it opens with actors in the movie sharing painful moments of their past, including abuse and health issues, and how they moved forward to find their "worth" as people of value. One actress tells of her manic depression and suicidal thoughts, but how she pushed through after hearing the voice of God speaking to her spirit, telling her she had a purpose and a reason to live.
Other wonderful examples are featured in the film, including actor Richard Neal explaining that he used to weigh 426 pounds and that his father kicked his mother's legs with his steel-toed boots. His step dad abused him, telling him he was fat, stupid, and worthless, and he once placed a pistol in his mouth. Instead of ending his life, he went on to lose 242 pounds in 18 months, became an actor, and now says he realizes he is "priceless." Aleta Myles, who plays Siberia in the movie, talks about losing her hair due to a health problem but how she now has confidence. The story focuses on Siberia, who has moved from Africa to America and plans to become a writer. She is hit by a car (is unhurt), has her car re-possessed and can't pay her rent. She also receives troubling news from her homeland. However, she perseveres and stays encouraged by watching The Princess of Suburbia on her computer. The Princess preaches faith to those who listen. In the end, amazing things happen to Siberia. There is a plot-line involving a stone that has been stolen, a stone Siberia believes must be returned to Africa in order for good things to be restored. The themes of perseverance and faith are to be commended. We are awarding our Dove Family-Approved Seal for ages twelve plus to "Of Sentimental Value." This film has many inspiring moments!

My Wisdom of Nugget for TODAY:
May I encourage someone today with my life story? "One man's poison; is another man's medicine!" Have you ever been in a situation where it didn't matter what you did... how hard you tried, those who are expected to lift you up and see the greatness in you... do exactly the opposite or better yet pretend they don't know what their assignment is for the season where it concerns you? Well... read this...#beinspired, #bemotivated, #beempowered!

Lesson I have learn't with my movie, Of Sentimental Value~God's favor does not always lie in perfection! It almost never align with what mans' eye can see. If we hear spiritually, then we will know when he is moving. During post production of this movie, I was moved to do something which was not necessarily the FILM standards... I brought up my actors/actresses and allowed them to shine over the main story... IT PAID OFF! In life, you need to allow your proteges to shine! As they shine, you shine too. What may not be visible to you is visible to GOD and God honors your effort~

The Princess of Suburbia, Princess Fumi Hancock.
