The Downtown Independent is thrilled to welcome established writer/filmmaker Roxanne Benjamin to our theater. We are so proud to be able to show her latest film BODY AT BRIGHTON ROCK on the big screen where it belongs. A constant figure of strength and creativity for women and genre filmmaking, Roxanne’s work is important and engaging and deserves to be seen theatrically. We hope that you will join us for this run and bring all your friends!
See below for a spoiler-free synopsis of this fabulous film!
Wendy, a part-time summer employee at a mountainous state park, takes on a rough trail assignment at the end of the season, trying to prove to her friends that she’s capable enough to do the job. When she takes a wrong turn and ends up deep in the backcountry, she stumbles upon what might be a potential crime scene. Stuck with no communication after losing her radio and with orders to guard the site, Wendy must fight the urge to run and do the harder job of staying put spending the night deep in the wilderness, facing down her worst fears and proving to everyone – including herself – that she’s made of stronger stuff than they think she is.
