No Way Out But One - Receives Award


For Immediate Release
June 10, 2011
(Boston, MA)

The producers of No Way Out But One are proud to announce that it has received a 2011 Telly Award. Telly Awards “honor the very best local, regional, and cable television commercials and programs, as well as the finest video and film productions, and work created for the Web."

No Way Out But One tells the story of Holly Collins, the first American to ever be granted asylum by the government of the Netherlands as a result of domestic violence. In a desperate attempt to keep her children safe from an abusive father, Ms. Collins kidnapped her own children and went on the run. Hunted by the FBI, she used a loosely organized “protective moms” underground to escape and eventually made it to Amsterdam, where she first lived as a refugee, and was later granted asylum. Ultimately, she was vindicated and all charges against her were dropped.

No Way Out But One won in the short form documentary category. Work is now underway to expand it into a full-length documentary. Hundreds of pages of never before seen FBI files are now being carefully reviewed, and efforts are underway to recruit a cast of enormously talented, high profile vocal talents to help tell the story. Wendie Malick, currently starring in Hot in Cleveland, was the first to volunteer. More announcements will follow.

Garland Waller and Barry Nolan are the producers. Sid Levin of First Frame is the photographer. Erika Street is the editor.

Congratulations Garland & Barry!
