Angelena Bonet, of Crystal Heart Productions has won two prestigious Awards of Recognition from the IndieFEST Film Awards. The awards were given for Angelena's debut documentary feature film Angelena: Change The World chronicling her life to the present day, which she produced and edited in its entirety. Angelena: Change The World features raw footage of her life, including her first television appearance at the age of four, her time as an Australian supermodel and now as a global women's rights activist. She co-wrote the musical score with her late fiancé, Erick Deeby, and has shared their special project as the film's soundtrack, which also won an award for Original Song (Tragic Fairytale). Angelena wrote the lyrics and melody to his instrumentals during her time of grief and include "Tragic Fairytale," "On My Way," and "Change The World," to name but a few.

"This is a huge honor to receive these two awards from the IndieFEST Film Awards! Words cannot describe how I feel right now, I honestly didn't expect any of this but it is just wonderful and I am cherishing every moment. This film was very difficult for me to make because I chronicled my whole life and basically put the pieces of myself back together. When I decided to be transparent and share my two tragedies and traumas by producing my documentary film I had no idea how healing the experience would be and where it would take me. If my late fiancé could see that I have just won an award for our song 'Tragic Fairytale' he would no doubt be just as happy and excited as I am!"
