Divorce Corp., the new documentary about divorce, family law, and the big business of tearing families apart, is brought to Buzzsaw by its director, Joseph Sorge. Discussing the priorities of family courts, how stay at home parents are rewarded in divorce, and the different systems of separation around the world, it is an intriguing look at the fallout from when things fall apart in love, in an uncensored interview hosted by Sean Stone.
Joseph Sorge is a first time writer/director who became interested in the subject of divorce after experiencing firsthand the complexities of the family law system. Although his personal experience was less devastating than that of the film's victims, he spent countless days in family court witnessing the callous, inefficient, and biased manner in which the court, and its associated professionals, treated average citizens. Before he began writing and filmmaking, Joseph earned a B.S. degree from M.I.T., and an M.D degree from Harvard, was a professor of molecular biology at The Scripps Research Institute, and founded a biotechnology company, Stratagene, which he took public and later sold to a large medical supply company.
