Unbroken Glass

When filmmaker Dinesh Das Sabu was a six-year-old boy growing up in Louisiana, his father died of cancer and his schizophrenic mother committed suicide. Two decades later, Sabu and his four older siblings, who essentially raised themselves, still grapple with memories of their father's anger, their mother's mental illness, and the parents' sudden deaths, not to mention their own identities as Indian-Americans. For this personal, emotionally complex documentary, Sabu spent five years interviewing family members and questioning his own upbringing; the result is a study of grief, forgiveness, and how family history can provide a greater understanding of oneself.
