Cassandra Rochelle Fetters is an emerging female filmmaker in New Mexico.
“As a survivor of domestic abuse and sexual assault myself, I felt a need to see my life represented on screen, not in an unrealistic fashion, but for what it actually is. I want to give others affected by domestic abuse hope that there is a better way to live. That there is freedom after the fight and the ability to breathe on your own terms.”
Cassandra Rochelle Fetters is an aspiring writer and filmmaker. She has worked in the film industry for 10 years as an actress. She always dreamed of being able to tell stories that mattered to her and after her original screenplay for Breathe was ranking in International screenwriting competitions, she wanted to give herself the opportunity to tell her own stories.
Breathe is her first film and it came from her passion to speak out against domestic violence, as she is a survivor herself. She is currently writing feature length films and looking forward to her next opportunity to direct.
