"My biggest regret is that I wasn't born beautiful-- there, I've said it." Jenny Jackson delivers these words with captivating candor in this poignant, short film by Green Renaissance. Lacking the experience of warmth and kindness in childhood, Jackson grew into a person she barely recognized. In her forties three words on a sandwich board brought a moment of self-reckoning that ripened over slow years. In her mid-sixties she began to deeply explore all the parts of her life that she had not truly dealt with. If you live long enough, you will experience great hurt. What you make of that is up to you. It can be beautiful or it can be ugly. "The important thing is not how one looks, but how you are able to connect to the people and the world around you." Discover the gift of Jackson's resilient spirit, her wisdom, humor and art here.
