Event Details

The Children Next Door

Directed by Doug Block

Runtime 36 minutes

Told through the eyes of a child, this hard-hitting film takes us on a family's journey to overcome years of experiencing domestic violence and the atrocity of one horrific incident that shattered their world.
Raised in households ripped by domestic violence, Penny and Brad vowed, when they fell in love, to end the cycle.
After a ten-year marriage plagued by waves of mounting brutality, all in front of their four young children, Brad’s outbursts culminated one indelible night in 2006 when he ruthlessly attacked Penny with a gun and machete and murdered her best friend.
THE CHILDREN NEXT DOORopens five-and-a-half years later as the family continues to struggle with the impact of the violence that shaped their lives. Within three short months, we witness an astonishing turn of events.

Warning: Given that the topic of suicide is brought up in the film, we are recommended it for age 12 and up.

The director, Delaney Ruston (via Skype) and Associate Producer, Linea Johnson will be available for Q&A after the screening.

Hidden Pictures is the ground-breaking feature documentary on global mental health. Ruston grew up under the shadow of her dad's schizophrenia, (Unlisted: A Story of Schizophrenia, Most Compelling Doc, STIFF 2009). But how does her experience compare to the rest of the world? Rustons mesmerizing new film takes us on her journey to India, China, Africa, France, and to Seattle to answer this question. What emerge are deeply personal stories of both profound frustration and unparalleled compassion including insights by actress Glenn Close.

Delaney is a Seattle-based award winning documentary filmmaker whose films have been widely seen at film festivals, conferences, on PBS, and have been the cornerstone of mental health awareness campaigns.

Associate Producer, Linea Johnson, is the author of the memoir, Perfect Chaos and a national speaker on mental health issues.
