Douglasville author’s short film starts to get attention at festivals


A Douglasville woman is getting attention at film festivals for a project two years in the making that focuses the lens on three women with traumatic childhoods as they navigate life.

Rachel Neal, a Virginia native, said her film “Raggity Anns” has been accepted to play at the Independent Shorts Awards, which will be held in Los Angeles in February.

The 18-minute film was inspired by stories in Neal’s relationship book, “Hey Rachel: Real Talk, Real Relationships, Real Advice,” which was published last year. The film has also been selected for the online Direct Short Film Festival.
