Picture This! Entertainment announced has picked up North American rights from Film Europe to Jiri Chlumsky’s Broken Promise.

The film premiered last month at the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival and is based on the autobiography of Martin Friedmann-Petrasek, a Holocaust survivor from Slovakia.

Picture This! Entertainment president and CEO Doug Witkins brokered the deal with Film Europe managing director Marta Lamperova.

“This film has to be a lesson and a warning,” Friedmann-Petrasek told a recent screening. “A lesson that everything in life could happen and a warning that a fascist’s and dictator’s regime must be defeated before it is too late.”
