Flawed humans one and all, we each break down in our own way. Our flow gets stopped up. We get in our own way. We dig holes for ourselves then wonder why we can’t see the light. Addiction, depression, personal ruts and bad cycles: somehow or another, chaos finds every single human life.
With this truism in mind, Convicts’ Director, Sharkey Weinberg, assembled artists, healers, professors, doctors, students and DJs and interviewed them about moments of personal fracture and the long road to rebuilding. The resulting short film, How We Break, is a poetic exploration of the subtle similarities, striking differences and shared patterns of humans at their breaking points.
