Cracked Up Still
Cracked Up / Cracked Up

On Wednesday, October 30, we’re screening Cracked Up at 7 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. It’s part of our Through the Lens series, a partnership with Utah Film Center. Director Michelle Esrick will be there for a post-film Q&A with RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio.

Saturday Night Live star Darrell Hammond performed brilliantly on live TV, but behind the scenes he struggled with debilitating flashbacks, self injury, alcohol and drugs and once was taken out of SNL in a straight jacket. In Cracked Up we witness the impact that childhood trauma can have over a lifetime through his incredible story.
