688 Nine9 Detroit Talent Requested for #IAmBianca Campaign

Several of our Nine9 talent in and around the Detroit area were requested to be a part of the #IAmBianca campaign. The #IAmBianca campaign stems from the film “Bianca” directed by Randy Holloway and produced by Arete Productions. Based on a true story, “Bianca” is a film telling the story of a woman whose search for love is derailed due to years of physical, mental, and self-inflicted abuse. As a child, Bianca’s mother betrayed her after learning she was molested by members of her own church.

During her teenage years, Bianca’s constant physical altercations with her stepfather eventually left her pregnant and defeated. As an adult, Bianca left home hoping for a better life with her husband, however, the life she ended up with was one she never would have expected.

This televised marketing campaign is to raise awareness for the film “Bianca,” but most importantly for child abuse and issues. The talent that were selected to be a part of the campaign will be holding a sign with “#IAmBianca” printed and will say a line into the camera. This is such a great campaign for the talent to take part in!
