The successful festival short film Broken tells the story of a boxer from East Los Angeles struggling with defeat and unrealized dreams.

Broken has been selected to screen at over a dozen film festivals both in the U.S. and internationally, including Italy, Mexico, Peru and Cuba.

Produced, Written and Directed by: David Wendelman


David Wendelman wrote, produced and directed Broken, shooting entirely on location in East Los Angeles. Wendelman collaborated with Director of Photography Francisco Bulgarelli to create the film’s gritty and haunting imagery. And former WBO (World Boxing Organization) Heavy Weight Championship boxer Michael Bentt took on the roles of Creative Producer, Fight Coordinator and Key Boxing Trainer, bringing an almost Neo-realist authenticity to this boxing drama.   15:30
