After living with my mother for the last decade of her life, I realized what a truly remarkable life she lived. After first simply gathering her memories into story-book form for sharing with the family, I soon came to realize the historical significance of her story. Not only that, the current immigration crisis in this country and countries around the world make this story about a Slavic immigrant’s struggle to climb out of poverty even more compelling.
Recently I found this note my mother left for me in a pamphlet about significant events that took place the year I was born.
“My Mom and Dad, William and Veda Shoda came to the United States in 1906, thru Ellis Island. They spoke a little English, not much. My Mom’s maiden name was Veda Boich and my dad is Willian Shoda and they both were from Zagreb, Yugoslavia. Zagreb is near Split, Yugoslavia. “
America has always held promise for a better life for immigrants past and present -- an America where hard work, struggle, and perseverance resulted in the opportunity to achieve the American dream. This is the heartfelt story of one immigrant’s family. William had a dream for his family to live free. Veda gave William the strength to work hard, Ruby gave William the faith to persevere, and Mary became the glue that kept his dream alive.
"It’s Nothing Personal” is a film about four generations of one family brought together by an unexplainable event. The point is - being aware of something doesn’t make us want to change. Unfortunately, humans only change when we are affected personally, as individuals. We have seen what happens when a few brave spirits demanded change throughout our history. Now, our thoughts are no longer limited in scope with what happens on this planet. We are on the verge of game-changing discoveries concerning our place in the universe. We are part of a bigger picture and our role demands global social responsibility or we will surely suffer the consequences. My hope is that this film will help remind humanity to start making better choices and to realize our unlimited potential as one race, on one planet, in one universe. Before it’s too late.
“Things that are positive, that impact people, that make them look in the mirror, and think about not what everyone can do, but maybe what I can do, or you could do, and then we can share that,”
