Breach of Trust explores the University of Southern California's institutional cover-up involving the sexual misconduct of former full-time gynecologist George Tyndall. The story is anchored by the survivors who, after being wronged by the university, continue their fight for institutional change. Joining them are Matt Hamilton, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who guides us through this three decades-old scandal, as well as Cindy Gilbert, a nurse who makes her first on-camera appearance to recount the years she spent trying to report Tyndall, and the hostility and retaliation she experienced for doing so.
Mishal Mahmud is a Pakistani filmmaker and second-year M.F.A. student studying film and television production at the University of Southern California. At USC, she made five short films and became deeply passionate about directing, editing and producing. Her love of both film and social justice eventually led her to developing and directing Breach of Trust, her first documentary short.
