Sacred Ground Productions Presents "Painted Red"

A story of profound love, the tragedy of loss and the redemptive power of compassion.

Written and Directed by Cynthia Stephens

Henrietta Lacks, an African American tobacco farmer, moves her family to Baltimore in search of a better life. When she is stricken with cervical cancer, Henrietta is treated at a world renowned medical center, where cells are taken from her body for experimentation without her knowledge or permission.

Henrietta’s cells secretly become the first immortal human cell line and a workhorse for scientific research and profit.

This unsung heroine’s name is finally brought to the light of day, but not before her family goes on a journey of their own.
