My Beautiful, Broken Brain (2014)
Directed by Lotje Sodderland
After 34-year-old Lotje Sodderland suffers a haemorrhagic stroke and undergoes emergency brain surgery, she is lucky to be alive. However, she suffers from aphasia, a language impairment that affects one’s ability to speak, read, and write. Almost immediately, Sodderland begins filming herself to document her journey—not quite to recovery, but to learning how to live with her new normal. Co-produced by none other than David Lynch, award-winning My Beautiful, Broken Brain is a deeply personal look at the physical and emotional ramifications of sudden brain damage.
