WTTW, in partnership with the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, presents a FREE screening and discussion of Unbroken Glass.
When he was six years old, Dinesh Das Sabu’s parents die. Raised by his older siblings, he had little idea who his parents were or where they came from. Through making Unbroken Glass, he attempts to piece together their story and his own. Uncovering a silenced family history and disturbing truth, Dinesh and his siblings must finally reconcile the past, confronting the trauma of losing their parents and the specter of mental illness.
Unbroken Glass weaves together Dinesh Das Sabu’s journey of discovering with cinema-verite scenes of his family dealing with still raw emotions and consequences of his immigrant parents’ lives and deaths. The film was shot over five years in Illinois, California, and India.
