David Lynch-produced doc My Beautiful Broken Brain: See the first trailer from Netflix
My Beautiful Broken Brain
David Lynch is bringing a story about the complexities of the human mind to Netflix this March.
My Beautiful Broken Brain follows Lotje Sodderland, a woman who suffered a severe stroke in 2011 and afterwards began seeing the world in an altered and sometimes beautiful way.
“I started seeing flashes of color. I feel like I’m in a David Lynch movie,” Sodderland says in the trailer.
As shown in the trailer, Lynch not only produced the doc but appears in the documentary in conversations with Sodderland. Sodderland and documentarian Sophie Robinson direct the film, which is a selection at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.
“The brain is truly fascinating and much in the way that our brains are able to achieve total coherence — finding enlightenment and fulfillment, you will surely be moved and inspired by this journey of self-rediscovery,” Lynch said of the project.
My Beautiful Broken Brain begins streaming on Netflix on March 18.
