Trauma Town

5.0/5

Critic Rating

Trauma Town explores photojournalist and director Amanda Mustard’s navigation of generational trauma in the wake of her HBO documentary, Great Photo, Lovely Life. After spending more than 8 years unlocking secrets of her grandfather’s serial sexual abuse, there’s still a lot left to unpack. How do you tell your family story in a way that embraces its messy reality and avoids sensationalism? How do we respond to sexual violence, and how can we do better? Join Amanda for a series of candid, vulnerable, and occasionally funny conversations about the precariousness of breaking cycles of trauma.
