In Theatres: CRACKED UP

Coming to theatres this Friday, September 13:
CRACKED UP

Director:
Michelle Esrick

World Premiere:
DOC NYC 2018

About:
SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE veteran Darrell Hammond opens up the impact of his childhood abuse.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
With courage and, of course, humor, master impressionist, comedian, and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE legend Darrell Hammond reveals his dark history as a victim of child abuse. Brilliant in the spotlight, Darrell was misdiagnosed and wrongly medicated for decades, struggling with drugs, alcohol, and nightmarish flashbacks. Michelle Esrick’s poignant film illuminates the devastating effects of childhood trauma and the importance of setting repressed memories free. She artfully balances humor and tragedy to craft a beautiful story of hope and resilience.
