Broken Flames partners with social impact agency TerraMedia for feature film Faulty Roots. 
Jie-Ming Chung and Mikkel Juel Iversen will serve as Executive Producers on the film. TerraMedia is the ideal partner for such an important story, as a company it has an excellent understanding of what it takes for a film to be a success and a track record of nurturing films with real social impact. But just as important is how both Jie-Ming and Mikkel believe in the message behind the work in Faulty Roots, a film that puts a spotlight on the mental health of young people. So many are suffering and struggling in silence thanks to the pandemic, but this has always been a major issue. That's what I want to show in this film. Depression changes the way you look at everything, and Faulty Roots highlights the importance of friendship, family, and why we all need a proper, caring support network. The team at TerraMedia understands this, and it's why we're so happy to have them on board.
