Damaged Goods is an original film produced by the Asbury University Media Communication department in collaboration with Hollywood veteran Nancy Stafford (Matlock, Magnum P.I., Who’s the Boss?), Asbury alumna Katie Oostman ’15 and Professor Doug Smart. The movie, starring Hannah Alline, explores the difficult and culturally relevant topics of abuse, alcoholism, and family and relationship dysfunction.
“Our goal was to create a film that was real as well as project hope for the future,” said Dr. Jim Owens, dean of the Asbury School of Communication Arts and professor of Media Communication. “I am very proud of their work! Damaged Goods is a film that we believe will resonate with our audience. It is honest and straight-forward while projecting hope in difficult times.”
Damaged Goods won Best Narrative Feature at the Knoxville Film Festival and was also selected for entry at NewFilmmakers NY, Louisville’s International Festival of Film, LA Femme International Film Festival, and Hollywood Women’s Film Institute: Hollywood Women’s International Film Festival.
