‘Broken Trust’ film to anchor child abuse prevention discussion in Park City

Local organizations collaborate for a free screening at the Park City Library

PARK CITY, Utah — A coalition of local organizations is stepping up to spark crucial conversations on child abuse through the screening of “Broken Trust,” a film that explores the troubling undercurrents of abuse in the sports world. This event will take place at the Jim Santy Auditorium on Thursday, May 2, from 7-9 p.m.

This special screening, which is part of the Park City Film’s Raising Voices Film Series, is organized by Park City Film in collaboration with Mountain Mediation, Park City Library, the Friends of the Children’s Justice Center, and the CJC Multidisciplinary team-Summit County.

When: May 2, from 7-9 p.m.

Where: Jim Santy Auditorium, Park City Library

What: “Broken Trust” film screening followed by expert panel discussion

Film run time: 31 minutes

Tickets: Free

“Broken Trust” is directed by Jill Yesko. The film draws from poignant testimonies of Olympic and national-class athletes, along with insights from their coaches, to paint a picture of the isolation and stigmatization faced by victims of abuse in sports. Through these narratives, the documentary highlights the pressures on athletes and the ongoing efforts to confront and change these abusive dynamics.

Following the film, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion featuring Wendy Crossland, a Victim Advocate from the Summit County Attorney’s office; Laurieann Thorpe, Executive Director of Prevent Child Abuse Utah; and Carrie Sheinberg, an associate producer of the film and former Olympian. The session will be moderated by Roger Armstrong, a member of the Summit County Council.

To deepen engagement, the evening will conclude with smaller group discussions facilitated by Mountain Mediation. This will allow attendees to reflect on and discuss the issues raised in a more intimate setting.

Admission to this event is free, though registration is required to secure tickets. Register here.
