Our Company

In 2005, wanting to know more about her own heritage, Arielle decided to explore and document the stories of her grandmothers, Harriet and Lenore.

The experience not only strengthened her bonds with these two lively women, it was proof that Arielle has a talent for revealing a story in an authentic, compassionate film. Legacy Connections Films was born.
