What people are saying about UNBROKEN GLASS:

  • “Starkly and yet tenderly shot, this is a candid and careful examination of this family’s apparently stoic sufferings and ultimate triumph over a tragic childhood. This is a moving and important film, highly recommended.”-Debra Davy, Critic on lasplash.com
  • “The Special Mention for Documentary Feature is UNBROKEN GLASS by Dinesh Das Sabu for its great courage and grace documenting a very difficult family history while demonstrating resilience of an Asian American family.”-Austin Asian American Film Festival Jury
  • “A promising directorial debut from Dinesh Sabu. A la Sarah Polley’s “Stories We Tell,” Sabu harnesses his intense family story…into an intimate, emotionally intricate narrative…His journey is a fascinating look into how we are caught between influences of our past and present, especially within the life-changing bond of family.” –Nick Allen, Critic on RogerEbert.com
  • “Like a mosaic, Unbroken Glass takes the broken pieces of an unspoken family tragedy and reassembles them into a new and moving work of art. Deeply personal, yet amazingly universal. 4 Jaws out of 4.”- Matt Kubinski, Host of the Cinemajaw Podcast
  • “In Unbroken Glass, tragically broken bonds result in a beautiful family mosaic of courage, strength, resilience, and hope. You will be changed by experiencing it.” – Diane Zell, co-leader of National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Champaign chapter.
  • “UNBROKEN GLASS is remarkable in its candor, both in its investigation of how an immigrant couple dealt with the challenges of cultural assimilation and family expectations, and in its frank conversations about mental illness in a culture where such subjects are often taboo.” Tim Tsai, executive director of the Austin Asian American Film Festival
  • “A powerful story of five kids raising each other, having lost their mother to suicide stemming from schizophrenia, a month after losing their father to cancer. The youngest of them all, Dinesh Sabu, through his film, explores the demons he is fighting about depression that might even be related to his family’s history of mental illness. This film makes the impact of mental health real.” Madhuri Kudaravalli, Tasveer Seattle South Asian Film Festival Programmer
