Documentaries & Dialogue: My Beautiful Brain
Thursday, January 4, 2018
Part film club, part book club, this new monthly program is designed to educate and prompt thoughtful community discussion in a safe, inclusive environment. Attendees will view a recent documentary film followed by a discussion.
MY BEAUTIFUL BROKEN BRAIN
This film is 34 year old Lotje Sodderland's personal voyage into the complexity, fragility and wonder of her own brain following a life changing hemorrhagic stroke. Regaining consciousness to an alien world - Lotje was thrown into a new existence of distorted reality where words held no meaning and where her sensory perception had changed beyond recognition. This a story of pioneering scientific research to see if her brain might recover - with outcomes that no one could have predicted. It is a film about hope, transformation and the limitless power of the human mind.
