When he was six-years-old, Dinesh Das Sabu’s parents died. Raised by his older siblings, he had little idea who his parents were or where he came from. Through making UNBROKEN GLASS, he attempts to piece together their story and his own. Uncovering a silenced family history and disturbing truths, Dinesh and his siblings must finally reconcile the past, confronting the trauma of losing their parents and the specter of mental illness. This is the Chicago premiere of Unbroken Glass, Dinesh Das Sabu's debut feature length film, which he originated while working as a Kartemquin intern in 2008, and produced in collaboration with several former Kartemquin Intern Program alumni in key roles. Reception to follow.
