A traumatic injury led a woman to David Lynch.
On March 18, Netflix will debut My Beautiful Broken Brain, a documentary executive produced by Lynch. It follows Lotje’s Sodderland journey after experiencing a traumatic stroke in 2011 and having to learn to do things like write again. In her recovery, she explains she often saw bright flashes of color, and felt as if she was in a David Lynch movie. So she reached out to him.
“The brain is truly fascinating and much in the way that our brains are able to achieve total coherence—finding enlightenment and fulfillment—you will surely be moved and inspired by this journey of self-rediscovery,” Lynch said in a statement.
Alex Gibney’s doc Cooked will also debut on Netflix this year, as the streaming site attempts to build out its documentary genre and ride the momentum of Making a Murderer.
