'Painted Nails': A Nail Salon Owner Shares Her Story of Safe Cosmetics Advocacy in New Documentary

New Media Rights is proud to provide legal services to social impact films, including Dianne Griffin and Erica Jordan's new documentary film Painted Nails from DigAll Media.  Painted Nails tells the story of a San Francisco nail salon owner's efforts to address public health challenges in the nail salon industry.

After learning her daily exposure to chemicals has caused life-threatening health problems, Van Hoang takes a life-changing journey from her vibrant nail salon to the steps of Congress, becoming the first person to testify for safe cosmetics in over 30 years.

California Western School of Law students Kevin Serrano and Camille Collantes provided the filmmakers with a variety of copyright and trademark licensing and clearance services necessary to get the film produced and distributed.

"New Media Rights’ thorough, timely and affordable fair use review on our documentary Painted Nails gave us the legal assurance we needed to distribute our film to audiences throughout the world, in order to initiate positive change in the toxic cosmetic industry. We highly recommend New Media Rights for all filmmakers who need reliable legal services from a group who care about the integrity of their work." - Erica Jordan & Dianne Griffin 

Painted Nails has screened to enthusiastic sold-out audiences in over fifteen film festivals around the world, including CAAMfest, Vietfest, The New Orleans Film Festival, ECO Festival in Malaysia, and at the United Nations Film Festival out of Stanford University.  

You can buy a DVD for educational and academic purposes, host a screening, or learn more at the film's website.
