Following Attendance at BronzeLens Film Festival
Paul Lamar Hunter’s “No Love, No Charity: the Success of the 19th Child”
From October 22 through 26, 2014, film lovers, makers and actors will gather in culture-and-heritage-rich Atlanta, Georgia for its fifth annual BronzeLens Film Festival to share a creative platform of education, entertainment and empowerment discussions related to film and television production. The festival will feature screenings in multiple venues, as well as informative panels, and enlightening Master Classes led by top names in film, direction and production. Paul Lamar Hunter, author of the sensational biographic titled “No Love, No Charity: the Success of the 19th Child,” plans to be on hand for the film festival in hopes of sharing with movie-making professionals his riveting life story—which is said to be prime for film development. “Trendsetters to Trendsetters Magazine” published a profile on Hunter in its October 2014 issue. Willie Stewart, the publication’s editor-in-chief, said to the author, “If you come to the BronzeLens Film Festival of Atlanta, your life could change forever!”
NATIONWIDE: Author Paul Lamar Hunter is excited to attend the fifth annual BronzeLens Film Festival of Atlanta, GA October 22-26, 2014 to share with movie making professionals his personal story as told in his gripping book “No Love, No Charity: the Success of the 19th Child.” Hunter’s inaugural literary offering is a thrilling autobiographical account that describes how he succeeded in life, and came to be the first (and only) of 21 siblings to have earned a college degree. Hunter’s troubled life traversed the perils of poverty, neglect, abuse and overall familial dysfunction. The author plans to attend the festival in hopes of getting an opportunity to share his story with movie development professionals.
Hunter’s narrative describes what it was like growing up in the shadows of a famous, yet detached psychotic mother whose affections were focused on the homeless shelter that she founded; and not on her children. Though it was supposed to have been a haven for the downtrodden, the shelter was actually the breeding ground for dysfunction and despondency.
The author and his living siblings (10 sisters, eight brothers) range in age from 41 to 62; residing in Austin, TX, Moreno Valley, CA, Racine, WI, Memphis, TN. Atlanta, GA, Pittsburgh, PA and St. Paul, MN. Among them, the siblings have 63 children and 55 grandchildren.
AMPS (African-aMerican People Succeeding), Trendsetters to Trendsetters, Austin Fit and Rock Thiz magazines all profiled Paul Hunter in their October issues. This summer Ebony, FINE Success and AMPS magazines each found Hunter’s gripping story so compelling as to warrant sharing with their respective readers nationwide.
