A Documentary About Love


Alan B. Smith has studied theatre and acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts (NY) and The School for Film and Television (NY); along with general studies at Ocean County College (NJ). Aside from his videography work, Born Equal is his first feature length documentary production.

Tsvete Smith has been involved in visual arts since a very young age. She is a graduate of Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". As the winner of a national creative writing contest Tsvete won the privilege of being a Bulgarian ambassador to the EU Youth Council "Resolving Conflicts – Creating Peace" in Austria, under the patronage of the European Cultural Foundation. She credits her experience in Austria for reinforcing her belief in humanity united in diversity. 

Wife and husband team, Tsvete and Alan B. Smith, whole heartedly defend the assertion that we are all in fact born equal and that human rights issues must evermore be at the center of mainstream discussions.

Alan was born and raised in New Jersey and is now living in New York City.

Tsvete was born and raised in Bulgaria and now lives in New York City.
