BROKEN PLACES
(55 min) US
[watch trailer]

Director: Roger Weisberg
Producers: Roger Weisberg

Description:

Broken Places explores why some children are severely damaged by early adversity while others are able to thrive. By revisiting some of the abused and neglected children we profiled decades ago, we’re able to dramatically illustrate how early trauma shaped their lives as adults. Broken Places interweaves these longitudinal narratives with commentary from a few nationally renowned experts to help viewers better understand the devastating impact of childhood adversity as well as the inspiring characteristics of resilience.

Biography:

Roger Weisberg joined public television station WNET as staff Producer in 1976. Since 1982 when he founded an independent production company, Public Policy Productions, Weisberg has written, produced and directed thirty-two documentaries. These films aired in primetime on PBS in the US, and many were released theatrically and broadcast around the world. Weisberg’s documentaries have won over 150 awards including Peabody, Emmy, and duPont-Columbia awards. He received Academy Award nominations for Sound and Fury and Why Can’t We be a Family Again?
