'I Am Vanessa Guillen' Documentary About U.S. Army Soldier Who Was Murdered in 2020 Heads to Netflix on November 17, 2022

I Am Vanessa Guillen, a new documentary based on the life and death of U.S. Army soldier Vanessa Guillen, will be released by Netflix later this fall.

Director: Christy Wegener

Producers: Christy Wegener, Isabel Castro, Lindsey Cordero, Armando Croda

Co-Executive Producer: Andrea Berman

Executive Producers: Story Syndicate's Dan Cogan, Liz Garbus, Jon Bardin, Nell Constantinople

Logline: U.S. Army soldier Vanessa Guillen always dreamed of joining the military, but once she was stationed at Fort Hood, everything shattered: In 2020, after telling her mother she was being sexually harassed on base, Guillen was murdered by a fellow soldier. Her story sparked an international movement of assault victims demanding justice, and this bracing, candid film follows her family's fight for historic military reform, a journey that takes them all the way to the Oval Office.

I Am Vanessa Guillen will be released on Netflix on November 17, 2022 and is a Story Syndicate production.

Director Christy Wegener said, "At the core, this is a story about overcoming the greatest odds imaginable in the name of family, love and justice. This is David vs. Goliath on steroids. Taking on the U.S. military, one of the largest, most powerful institutions in America is no easy feat. In making the film, it was incredible to witness a family, in the most tragic moment of their lives, put their grief aside, step out into the public arena and fight for the greater good."

Today, Friday, September 30 would have marked Vanessa's 23rd birthday.
