How Children are Impacted by Divorce
Ellen Bruno, creator of the film Split: Divorce through Kids’ Eyes, is a child of divorce. Her parents divorced when she was 12. Her family’s way of dealing with the divorce was to never talk about it. This created monstrous fears in her and her siblings. As an adult, Ellen went through a divorce from the father of her children. Remembering her own experience, Ellen set out to create something interesting and trustworthy for her own children. She wanted them to be able to hear the experiences of other children. The result is a touching, honest, candid view of divorce through the eyes of a child.
