It's not always easy to know how kids feel when their parents get divorced -- so local filmmaker Ellen Bruno decided to ask them. Her documentary, "Split," turns the camera on kids and the range of emotions they feel when parents go their separate ways. We discuss divorce through the eyes of children, and how best to look after them when marriage ends.

Host: Dave Iverson


  • Claire Barnes, former executive director of Kids' Turn, a non-profit organization to help children and parents through divorce
  • Ellen Bruno, award-winning documentary film producer and director of "Split"
