"Untold" By & about Gina Garcia-My review
I saw the movie "Untold" at it's world premier tonight at the Central Florida Film Festival and I expect it to be picked up by a major TV network soon. Gina Garcia, or Orlando wrote the script of her life's story revolving around her abduction and rape at the age of 8 in Orlando, Her parents were told by the hospital and police to forever deny to her that she had been raped and this repressed memory wrecked havoc in her life, until finally she broke down and had to work through it in therapy and then confront her family.
The movie is excellently done and clearly brings you through her gut wrenching emotional journey.
Gina is half Hispanic and half Filipino and is a lesbian.
The movie clearly shows the importance of assimilating painful memories ignored.
It is based on her true story.
