Kinosmith Presents "The Divide" - January 20, 2012

Kinosmith presents director Xavier Gens' post-apocalyptic thriller, "The Divide", opening in Toronto, Friday, January 20, 2012 @ the Scotiabank Theatre .

The Canadian co-production starring Michael Biehn, Milo Ventimiglia, Michael Eklund, and Rosanna Arquette was shot in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The theatrical cut, running close to 2 hours, contains 13 minutes of additional footage not included in the version that screened at festivals in 2011 :

"As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape even with no promise of salvation on the outside..."
