TAKEN IN is a handmade feature film about a man who must spend a weekend alone with his estranged teenage daughter at a roadside resort. It is here that Simon and Brooklyn must confront the issues that have driven them apart, and ultimately choose how they will move forward...together or alone.

TAKEN IN was written and directed by personal filmmaker, Chris White. It was made entirely with cash and in-kind contributions from friends and family. The story (co-written with his wife Emily), was inspired by Chris’ theatre work with students at a therapeutic boarding school. The film is dedicated to his own teenage daughter, Gibson.

TAKEN IN was filmed at South of the Border, Dillon SC USA in the Spring of 2011.

Pre-Release "House-Screenings"

Kickstarter backers who gave us $500 (there were four) will see TAKEN IN before anyone else.

Between late May and the end of June, there will be at least four private, “house-screenings” of the film. I will be there to personally introduce the film and to answer any questions people have…also to listen to feedback from the audience as to how best to improve the film.

Final cut of the film will be completed after these screening events, and I hope to apply what preview audiences have to say about the film to that final, locked cut.

2 JUNE \\ Taylors, SC

5 JUNE \\ South Boston, VA
