We recently took our talents to Nashville Tennessee for the world premiere of, Beautifully Broken, a film that explores a refugee’s escape, a prisoner’s promise, and a daughter’s painful secret that converge in this inspiring true story of hope. As three fathers fight to save their families, their lives become intertwined in an unlikely journey across the globe, where they learn the healing power of forgiveness and reconciliation.
To say this film is amazing is an understatement. Not only was it memorable, but it lives up to it’s name. But what does Beautifully Broken mean? We caught up with the films executive producer, stars and the beautiful CeCe Winans (who is on the soundtrack) to get their take on the beautiful meaning of the title of this film.
What does the title, Beautifully Broken, mean to you?
“We are all broken, But God still has a beautiful plan for us. If you keep the faith, and keep moving forward, he can turn it around. It’s like stained glass, it’s all shattered, but put together it’s the most beautiful art there is.”
-Executive Producer, Randy Hartley
‘Wow, well they mean a lot. But mainly, beautifully broken means if you have pain, you are not alone. I think it’s our honesty and authenticity with each other that builds a brighter community, and beautifully broken is all about that.’
-Actress, Emily C. Hahn
“Living in such a social media age, where everyone is posting their high peak moments, I feel like we need to uncover our flaws and have more authentic relationships, so I love the title from the beginning because of that is what it means to me.’
-Scott Williams Winters
“Well, God is close to the brokenhearted, and so many times the enemy will make you feel like everything is over and broken because you’re hurting. But God has proven time and time again that he will take your brokenness and turn it into something pretty. So I think it’s a powerful movie, a powerful message and a powerful song.
