In this Girls That Create podcast episode, host Erin Prather Stafford talks with filmmakers Chyna Robinson and Tracy Rector about their film No Ordinary Love. The film captures the slow-burn destruction of relationships plagued by domestic abuse and how coercive control can be just as damaging as physical attacks.
About Chyna Robinson and Tracy Rector
Chyna Robinson is an award-winning filmmaker whose work has appeared on national and international film circuits. Her director work includes the historical drama Greenwood: 13 Hours, the thriller Lola Lisa, and No Ordinary Love. No Ordinary Love centers on two women experiencing betrayal and manipulation by their husbands. Eventually, they begin plotting to find a way out. Chyna has been recognized during SXSW as a “Female Filmmaker to Watch” and featured at the American Black Film Festival. She is committed to telling compelling stories with women in key roles in front of and behind the camera.
Tracy Rector never dreamed of being a filmmaker but found herself called to be the executive producer of No Ordinary Love. Her passion as a survivor and her desire to reach out to other victims was the force behind the project. While serving on the SafeHaven of Tarrant County Board, Tracy learned from their annual Fatality Review that greater domestic abuse awareness is needed. As a survivor, her favorite hashtag is #StartByBelieving. These words resonate with her experience of being married to a well-known, beloved minister who few believed could be abusive.
