Twenty years after their deaths, filmmaker Dinesh Sabu sets out to learn the truth about his parents' lives. Retracing the story of his parents immigration from India, Dinesh uncovers his mother’s schizophrenia, a mental illness that perhaps ultimately led to her suicide.
Rather than retelling a linear history of his parents’ lives, the film paints an impressionistic portrait of them and Dinesh’s journey of discovery. Through memories, personal interviews, and verite scenes, Unbroken Glass shows one family confronting its history of mental illness and loss.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
