On Hollowhood, “the best independent film magazine in the UK”, Vida Guerra has joined the cast of feature film, A Son’s Gift, to embody human essance through spiritual connection.
Cuban model and actress VIDA GUERRA has joined the feature film, A SON’S GIFT, a captivating tale of grief, love, and strength. Guerra will play her own role, embodying the human essence through her spiritual connection and resonance to humanity.
Guerra’s first national exposure after appearing in a lingerie spread for FHM in December 2002. The magazine later reported that almost one-third of their following mail came from readers demanding more photos of her. After being called back for more photo shoots, she became “FHM’s Model of the Year” in 2004. She has been featured in DUB, Smooth, Escape, and Open Your Eyes, often as the cover girl, and was voted Number 26 in “FHM’s Top 100 Sexiest Females” of 2005.
Guarra was introduced to Nicky back in 2005 during his chemotherapy journey. Nicky’s mother and screenwriter of A SON’S GIFT said her son found strength and healing through her words of compassion, helping him cope with his cancer fight.
“Our sisterhood continued connection is because of Nicky. I believe, beyond the veil, he keeps Vida in my life, spiritually supporting my journey. Vida’s authentic heart is why Vida is a part of my grief journey and our story. After all, my son had a thing for beauty inside and outside.”
A Son’s Gift
A SON’S GIFT has garnered 15 screenwriting awards, and has been made into a feature-length dramatic screenplay, written by Bell at the bedside of her ailing mother in the midst of a global pandemic.
“There was an untapped faith beneath all my pain and grief. There I found the courage to share what matters most, that raw diamond of emotion that shines within each one of us called Hope.” Bell says.
A SON’S GIFT honors and celebrates the legacy of those we’ve all loved and lost, to share the broken heart of the human experience and watch it regenerate, heal, and ﬁnd hope. This rare glimpse into how we, as wounded people, can change our perspective surrounding grief is a powerful opportunity for a spiritual renaissance.
A thought-provoking tale, A SON’S GIFT takes the reader on an emotional journey that dives deep into finding our spiritual renaissance.
