Renegade Pictures will be in office #548 at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel.
As was previously reported here and there on ScreenAnarchy, the screenplay for Broken was written by Mason and Boyes. The movie stars Nadja Brand as Hope, Eric Colvin as the man, and Abbey Stirling as the schoolgirl.
Here's a synopsis for Broken that was on the old official website for the movie (which was at http://www.hearteater.com/): "Hope (Nadja Brand) and her young daughter are abducted and brought to a remote, terrifying forest by a mysterious and nameless man (Eric Colvin). As Hope is forced to undergo humiliating, violent and degrading trials she fights desperately to escape and discover the fate of her missing daughter. ¶ But the forest is an endless maze and the man is cruel and uncompromising. ¶ When the man reveals the death of Hope's daughter, she develops a plan to exact her revenge and make her escape. Sacrificing her dignity and humanity, Hope is forced to initiate a series of drastic events which send the delicate balance between captor and slave hurtling out of control. ¶ Hope's actions lead to a devastating and terrifying conclusion, and a secret so dark that it threatens to destroy Hope entirely. ¶ Will Hope escape the clutches of evil, or will she be Broken?"
Broken had its world première at Dead by Dawn 2006 in Edinburgh, Scotland on April 22nd, where - as was previously reported here on ScreenAnarchy - it shared the Audience Award for Best Feature with Robert Krause's Blood Trails.
