LETTERS TO ASHLEIGH
2015 MILWAUKEE PRESS CLUB WINNER - BEST DOCUMENTARY
In the morning hours of October 6, 2009, an intruder broke into the Milwaukee-area home of recent high school graduate Ashleigh Love, walked to her bedroom, and shot her to death while she was sleeping.
LETTERS TO ASHLEIGH gives audiences a glimpse at a family that has been hit with an unimaginable tragedy, but still found a way to persevere with their heads held high. During the film, the family reads letters they received in the days and weeks following Ashleigh's death; first from close family and friends, and then total strangers from around the country who heard about the story. This short documentary shows how one girl's death inspired an entire community to make a change.
