In the documentary ‘My Beautiful Broken Brain” filmmaker Lotje Sodderland takes us on a personal journey through a year of her recovery from a hemorrhagic stroke at the age of 34. Initially experiencing the complete loss of her ability to read, write, or speak coherently, Lotje also starts seeing the world as a portal of flashes of colour, feeling like she exists in a David Lynch movie.
​ ​
Giving insight to having an invisible disability, this 2014 film is made in London, largely from footage recorded by the ​protagonist on her iPhone. Curated by The Other Screen and presented in partnership with Fabrica, this month’s theme is ‘Brain Activity’. The film will be shown within the setting of David Shrigley’s installation Life Model II. Before the films, the audience will be invited to sit, observe, and draw the model using easels and materials provided. Feature films made, produced and starring disabled people are rarities and this one is not to be missed.
