Freestyle Inks Distribution Deal for

Rights to BROKEN MEMORIES


Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has acquired the North American rights to the feature length romantic-drama, BROKEN MEMORIES. Freestyle Digital Media is granted all ancillary rights for North American territories and anticipates the film will debut to streaming audiences November 14, 2017. 

The film, which deals with the topic of Alzheimer’s and its impact on a struggling family, stars Ivan Sergei, Rance Howard, Cerina Vincent and Kelly Greyson. Written by Frankie Lauderdale, BROKEN MEMORIES is directed by Michael Worth and produced by Kassi Crews through Broken Memories, LLC, in association with Digital Jungle Pictures. Gary Levinsohn and Dennis Ho are Executive Producers. 

 BROKEN MEMORIES is a poignant drama that depicts the often-untold story of a caretaker for the elderly.  Once estranged from his family, Levi (Ivan Sergei), has returned home to care for Jasper (Rance Howard), 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). 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 in a burst of violence. 

 “BROKEN MEMORIES is, in part, a love letter of appreciation to anyone who has served as an unpaid caregiver for a loved one suffering from dementia,” says producer Kassi Crews. “Making BROKEN MEMORIES has been a passion project for everyone involved and we are all thrilled to pass that work on to the accomplished and capable hands of Freestyle.”

 “BROKEN MEMORIES is a powerfully moving film with a phenomenal cast and a career-defining performance from Hollywood veteran, Rance Howard,” said Bill Vergos, Vice President of Operations for Freestyle Digital Media. “It is very rewarding to connect audiences with this overlooked theme of Alzheimer’s and its powerful impact on the entire family.”
