Jewish Film Festival Screening: “Broken Trust: Athlete Abuse Exposed”
June 15, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A discussion with athletes and advocates featuring a special screening of the documentary Broken Trust: Athlete Abuse Exposed
Monday, June 15, 7pm
Registration is complimentary. Register by 4pm on June 15.
We invite our members to join us and the Indianapolis JCC for a screening of Broken Trust followed by a panel discussion with filmmaker Jill Yesko, attorney Jon Little, and elite gymnast and survivor Jessica Armstrong.
Broken Trust gives voice to the courageous women and men who have dared to speak up against abuse on all levels. Told through interviews with Olympic and national-class athletes, coaches and experts, Broken Trust looks at how and why abuse takes place and what needs to be done to stop it. Beyond the attention-grabbing headlines, this documentary gives viewers a candid look at the secret world of sexual and emotional abuse experienced by athletes. With unflinching honesty, Broken Trust shows how athletes are isolated and ostracized for speaking out, how parents are pressured to keep silent when confronted by predators in the guise of well-meaning coaches, and how athletes who dare to challenge the status quo are denied much-needed financial assistance.
With the foundation of awareness about sexual abuse brought about by the #metoo movement, Broken Trust is a film whose time is now.
In partnership with JCC St. Louis and Heartland Film
