This coming Sunday, the Brooklyn Museum will present “Back Walking Forward,” a new 40-minute documentary about traumatic brain injury, to mark Brain Injury Awareness Month.

“Back Walking Forward” tells the story of a Sheepshead Bay family whose lives changed without warning when their son Eric sustained a brain injury after a car accident. It recounts his struggle to relearn life skills, and his family’s attempts to redefine normal life in the aftermath of his injury.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Kavery Kaul, “Back Walking Forward” takes the audience along on the unpredictable road to recovery. Bob Woodruff of ABC News calls it “an amazing and absorbing documentary.”
