In Cracked Up we witness through the incredible story of actor, comedian, master impressionist and Saturday Night Live veteran, Darrell Hammond, the impact adverse childhood experiences can have across a lifetime. Behind the scenes Darrell suffered from debilitating flashbacks, self injury, addiction and misdiagnosis, until the right doctor isolated the key to unlocking the memories his brain locked away for over 50 years. Cracked Up, directed by Michelle Esrick, creates an inspiring balance between comedy and tragedy helping us understand the effects of childhood trauma in a new light, breaking down barriers of stigma and replacing shame with compassion and hope.
