United States | English | 38' | Non-Fiction

Part quest for justice. Part journey towards healing. Decorated Nashville cop Mark Wynn wrestles with his own violent childhood while working to reform decades of domestic violence mishandling, cover-ups, and abuse from deep within law enforcement.

In an articulate and emotionally engaging recount of Lt. Mark Wynn’s experiences against domestic violence, This Is Where I Learned Not To Sleep provides a rare and invaluable opportunity to hear from a male victim. His life chronicle and subsequent work are interesting and inspiring as he turned his story of heartbreak and pain into a call to reform decades of domestic violence mishandling. Anne de Mare and Kirsten Kelly give audiences a lot of information about a difficult subject in a way that is easily understood and sensitive to the experiences of victims. I was engaged the entire length with this documentary, a story of hope and resilience, and went to the mat to find 38 minutes of programming time to include it! — Lauren Reid Brown, Director of Programming
