Kickstart Sunday – ‘Lessons From Violet’

Every week on Film Pulse, we highlight a Kickstarter project that we think you’ll really like, and deserves some support. Not only do we implore you to contribute to these projects, but we will contribute as well. Kick your Sunday off right by helping support independent film. If you help fund any of the projects we list, send us an e-mail at, and we’ll make sure to thank you on the podcast.

This week we’re highlighting Lessons From Violet, from director Allen Wolf.  Believe it or not, this is a romantic comedy about human trafficking, which makes it sound just too interesting to not recommend.  The project is currently at $18,033 of a $50,000 goal with only 51 hours to go, so click here to donate now.

Lessons from Violet is a feature-length romantic comedy written, directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker Allen Wolf.

Our story is about a religious man who has trouble with women until he meets a prostitute who becomes his dating coach. The script was inspired by the ancient Hebrew book of Hosea.

Lessons from Violet will be the first romantic comedy about human trafficking which is the illegal trade of human beings mainly for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor. We’ll be the first romantic comedy to highlight the issue of human trafficking and we’ll do it in a way that entertains the audience and equips them to confront this important issue in their own community.

Just as the movie Life is Beautiful got us to laugh while revealing the reality of the holocaust we are aiming do the same with the issue of human trafficking. We can entertain and make a difference!
