The Story of Isha Desselle – The Woman Who Sold Everything To Help Those With Nothing

We all have defining moments in our lives.

They can be times, situations, or places that challenge your view of the world and yourself,  and inspire you to set a new course. Taking part in Muse Film School this past fall and telling the story of Isha Desselle was a defining moment in my life. It challenged how I viewed video production and what it means to create impactful stories that motivate change. Stories that help a business be more success, stories that help launch a startup, stories that help share the mission of a nonprofit. But beyond all that, stories that make the world a better place.

As the team’s director I’m proud of Isha’s story and the impact she is making in her community at Turning Point Center. We talked for hours on the phone before we arrived in Houston and then we spent three days together during filming and she is a truly remarkable person.

Here’s the official writeup from Muse Film School.

——-

“What if she was my mother?” This is what Isha Desselle thought when she saw the face of the homeless woman on the street.

That nagging thought kept her awake for months – and Isha decided to do something about it. This is the story of how she found a way to make a change, and help thousands of elderly homeless people finally find a place to call home.

Produced by a global team of filmmakers as part of Muse Film School  for the original web-series The Remarkable Ones.
