The Digital Hollywood Experience

Special Event at Digital Hollywood

Curated by WIF Women in Film

 

10:30 AM, Haas Conference Center - Room 172 & 173

Special screening of BROKEN MEMORIES, a romantic drama that depicts the often-untold story of a caretaker for the elderly. Once estranged from his family, Levi (Ivan Sergei - The Opposite of Sex; Crossing Jordan; Jack & Jill), has returned home to care for Jasper (Rance Howard - A Beautiful Mind; Nebraska; How the Grinch Stole Christmas), his father who suffers from Alzheimer’s.  Committed to preserving his father’s independence and dignity, Levi sets aside their issues and runs the family farm with seemingly little help from his sister, Sara (Cerina Vincent).  After Jasper wanders off one too many times, Levi resigns to hire a beautiful and somewhat mysterious caretaker named Maggie (Kelly Greyson-Woodlawn). Her patience and warmth begins to rebuild the bridge between father and son as the old house begins to resemble a home once again.  Unfortunately, Maggie has her own turbulent past that eventually catches up with her and changes everything.
