A provocative, powerful and poignant story about one woman’s struggle from
childhood trauma to extraordinary triumph against all odds!

UNITED STATES, March 17, 2022 / — “THE RELENTLESS ONE” chronicles the life and work of Kathleen Black, who survived a horrific childhood as a witness to her parents domestic abuse and became homeless at 15 after she survived her own physical and emotional abuse which landed her in a psychiatric ward for observation. While these traumas would have crushed most people, Ms. Black chose to not only survive, but thrive and grow stronger through it all.

Her remarkable perseverance personally and professionally is why Ms. Black has become known as “The Relentless One.” Her inspiring tale is documented in the film and shows the audience how she uses her past pain to fuel her future and incite others. Her journey has led her to teach others how to survive unimaginable hell, feel safe and flourish in all aspects of life. It is no surprise that she is one of the world’s leading performance coaches for iconic brands, business and individuals.

Kathleen Black’s accolades are many, but a few notable ones are: two-time bestselling author of Top 1% Life: Shift from Chaos to Calm in Your Business & Life and Relentless to Rise: Powering Your Life From the Inside-Out, awarded the “Iconic Leaders Creating a Better World for All’ award from the Women’s Economic Forum, and founder of The Ultimate Team Summit Event, the largest team specific sales summit in North America. The annual growth of Ms. Black’s client network is worth billions in additional sales volume annually. She is also a

highly-sought after keynote speaker with a TedX appearance scheduled in October.

“THE RELENTLESS ONE” is a very raw, real and honest account of Kathleen’s life and her extraordinary victory over tragedy. This is also a harrowing survival and success story fueled by the tenacity of a truly relentless person, who turned pain into purpose.

The film is by EMMY award winning director and three-time nominated producer, M. Douglas Silverstein, who states, “The film unearths some very challenging subjects like domestic abuse, teen homelessness, and mental health issues. I believe the audience will have an emotional ride, while it ultimately leaves you with hope, the promise of love, and some questions that may never be answered. One thing is for sure, Kathleen Black is definitely The Relentless One!”

The world premiere of “The Relentless One” documentary, will take place at the American Documentary & Animation Film Festival (AmDocs) on Friday, April 8, 2022 in Palm Springs, California.
