“I am incredibly happy to have The Renata Road premiering at the Believe Psychology Film Festival,” says producer/director Ed Greenberg, “It is a film born out of the idea for a piece that was not only entertainment but also as a picture which would challenge its audience, which would encourage and reward that deeper engagement. One of the joys of The Renata Road lies in the interpretation. Everything in the film has a purpose, everything has a meaning, and that is very much in keeping with the core values of the Believe Psychology Film Festival.”
“The Renata Road is a very singular work, unique in it’d conception and execution.” adds Cannon Film Company Managing Director, Richard Albiston, “Ed Greenberg has always referred to the film as a “psychological enigma” so it is fantastic for his film to be chosen by the Believe Psychology Film Festival to be the premiere showcase for his feature debut.”
The Renata Road is a twisted psychological enigma about a mysterious stranger arriving at the nightmarish Renata Hotel, with no memory of his identity or purpose. He is plagued by insomnia, walking the deserted corridors and common rooms, under constant surveillance from the hotel’s staff. Gradually, as the reluctant stranger encounters the Renata’s few other guests, he discovers that they’re united with the family in a violent, sexual conspiracy, that has the hotel’s shy, young maid at its heart. Now he must fight the escalating madness of the hotel’s denizens to save the girl, and solve the mystery of the Renata, and with it, the secret of his own identity.
The film is A Cannon Film Company Presentation of a Beyond The Bar Ltd Production, A Film by Ed Greenberg, starring C.J. de Mooi, Rebekah Bowman, John Sharp, Ed Theakston and Sharon Sinclair. The screenplay is written by Alan Mockler, Greg Saxton and Chris Worthington and is produced and directed by Ed Greenberg.
