Adria Dawn and David Tarleton recently traveled to Los Angeles, CA, for screenings of her award-winning short film “Gray Area” and also “Identity,” her latest film for social change in her series “Kids Matter.”  Both films screened at the Awareness Film Festival at LA LIVE and “Gray Area” opened the Reel Recovery Film Festival in LA, as well as playing at The Lonely Seal Film Festival in Boston.

Gray Area is about Kate Gray, a women who struggles with a full-time career as a therapist, raising four young children, past personal traumas, and marriage. She tries to hold it all together, spiraling through the “gray area” of addiction and anxiety.

Gray Area had its world premiere in March 2022, at The New York Socially Relevant Film Festival. The film has won over 10+ awards and recently won the Grand Jury Award for Best Narrative Short at the Awareness Film Festival in LA! The film also just played at The Global Exchange Conference, the world’s largest mental health, addiction and wellness conference.

Adria, did you ever think that Gray Area would have so much impact and success?

A: Well, I had hoped it would be successful!  Im so happy that Kelley Kitley, whom the film is based on, chose Tarleton/DawnProductions to collaborate with on telling her story. It was a labor of love and Im thrilled at how well its been doing. Kitley, a mental health expert and therapist, has been using the film in conjunction with her inspiring talks on addiction and wellness, and that feels really good to me- to be a part of a project that is being used such an impactful way.


Dawn just gave an inspiring hour long talk about her life in the arts to the Waukegan Park District this month.

It was an honor to share my body of work, both in front of and behind the camera, and to share candidly about the highs and lows of the industry. – Adria Dawn
