Filmmaker Nicole Cannon writes about how her struggle to cope with the sexual abuse she suffered as a child drew her into NXIVM, and resulted in her new film “Transference.”
Nicole Cannon started out as an actress with roles in television shows including CSI and The Mentalist. She saw more power in a platform focused on writing and directing rather than acting, as she found herself put into too many “victim” roles. Originally writing Transference as a short film, Cannon wrote the project as a healing process for her own childhood abuse, although the story itself is fictional. It came to fruition as a second-year project for the University of Santa Monica spiritual psychology program. This is Cannon’s first professional writing gig.
