Breaking Glass Pictures and Libertine Films are proud to announce the upcoming March 15 theatrical and VOD release of Jules Stewart‘s directorial debut, K-11, a riveting drama that tells the story of a man’s plight after winding up in K-11, the Los Angeles County Jail’s transgender inmate unit.
Fifteen cities around the country are slated to host weeklong theatrical runs of K-11, starting at New York’s Cinema Village, Los Angeles’ Laemmle NoHo Theater, Phoenix’s Film Bar, Columbus’ Gateway Film Center, and others on March 15th. The film will be available nationwide on Demand the same day. Additional runs will follow in cities such as San Diego, San Francisco, Denver and Daytona.
K-11 stars Goran Visnjic (ABC-TV’s upcoming “Red Widow”, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, “ER”) as Raymond Saxx, a businessman whose drug use leads him to incarceration in the section of the Los Angeles County Jail reserved for LGBT inmates and firmly under the heel of Mousey (Kate Del Castillo, Under the Same Moon), a malicious transgendered inmate. Saxx has no idea how he got there — all he knows is he needs to get the hell out…alive and intact. Aggressive cellmates, corrupt officials and his own issues are just a few challenges he deals with while he pieces together a way out of this entirely new brand of hell.
Jules Stewart, mother to Twilight star Kristen, is a lauded script supervisor with over thirty years of experience in Hollywood. In 2010, Stewart formed Libertine Films with her business partner, producer Tom Wright. K-11 is their first feature.
K-11 also stars DB Sweeney (Taken 2), Jason Mewes (Jay & Silent Bob, Clerks), Portia Doubleday (Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie, Youth in Revolt) and Tommy “Tiny” Lister (The Fifth Element, Jackie Brown). Son Cameron Stewart makes his film debut in K-11 as Sledgehammer, while daughter Kristen Stewart (Twilight, On the Road) makes a special contribution.
