BREACH OF TRUST to Broadcast on WORLD Channel!


BREACH OF TRUST
Directed by Mishal Mahmud
A timely film about systemic power,
sexual abuse, and the ethics of care
Based on a 2018 LA Times, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative report, BREACH OF TRUST (dir. Mishal Mahmud) details crimes committed by Dr. George Tyndall, a gynecologist at the University of Southern California health center who engaged in sexual assault for decades without punishment and with active cover-up on the part of the administration. Anchored by stories of survivors and the account of whistleblower Cindy Gilbert, RN, BREACH OF TRUST is sure to spark urgent and necessary conversations about systemic power, sexual abuse, and the ethics of care.

BREACH OF TRUST airs TONIGHT on WORLD Channel's Local USA and will be available to stream through October 31, 2022. Check local listings for air times. The film is also available to purchase or to book for screenings.

Praise for BREACH OF TRUST
"Powerful and heart-rending…the film shines brightest in the powerful and unguarded interviews it elicits from the women at the heart of the story."  — Short of the Week
"Engaging, informative, and multi-functional...Breach of Trust satisfies its goal of exposing corruption in a school that failed to protect its students. A valuable addition for social justice-oriented library shelves. Highly recommended."  Video Librarian
"The filmmakers have seen the effects of a community driven film, the way it brings people together and continues to provide a platform for underserved voices, and they encourage others to do the same."  — The Hollywood Reporter
