SPLIT is a deeply personal film that explores the effects of divorce on children. The film features twelve children aged 6-12, who explore the often frightening and always life altering separation of their parents.
SPLIT gives us the children's perspective on divorce...
no adults, no experts… just kids speaking the powerful truth
of what is on their minds and in their hearts.
Their wisdom, candor, and humor will give courage
to other children, and encourage parents
to make better choices as they move through divorce.
Almost half the children in the U.S. will experience their parent’s separation before the age of 16 — more than any other country in the western world.
“It’s the depth of Bruno’s commitment to flesh-and-blood people that
creates tension within her films. Her films are windows that open outward, not cases slamming shut.”
