TV Goodness Teaser: Netflix’s My Beautiful Broken Brain


What would you do if you suffered a catastrophic brain event? Lotje Sodderland did and discovered that her brain now functioned in an alien, but interesting way. Bereft of language and logic, Lotje fought not to be defined by her limitations, but rather the endless possibilities of life.

“If the physical body – the brain, is damaged, does this extend to damage to the self?”

This question is at the heart of Netflix’s new original documentary film, My Beautiful Broken Brain as we follow Lotje’s incredible story of rehabilitation and recovery from a traumatic hemorrhagic stroke.

This feature documentary takes us on a genre-twisting tale that is by turns excruciating and exquisite – from the devastating consequences of a first-time neurological experiment, through to the extraordinary revelations of her altered sensory perception.

Executive producer David Lynch adds, “I am thrilled to join Lotje and Sophie in sharing My Beautiful Broken Brain with the world. 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.”

My Beautiful Broken Brain premieres Friday, March 18th on Netflix.
