In the aftermath of Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake, grappling with PTSD, filmmaker Luke A. Renner set out on a healing journey that would eventually unlock an older, deeper, childhood trauma he had lost in time. In his pursuit of personal healing, Luke would eventually uncover the insidious reality of psychological trauma and a public health crisis that’s been quietly wreaking havoc on humanity. In the documentary "What Lies Inside", Luke sets out to expose an unspoken truth that he discovered, a truth about the darkness that binds us to our suffering. With the help of world-renowned experts, fellow survivors, and creators from around the globe, this film seeks to illuminate what lies inside us all, a truth that, when faced, may finally set us free.


An award winning filmmaker with over 20 years of experience, Luke has 8 gold and 9 platinum RIAA video awards, and directed projects which spent over 400 weeks on Billboard Magazine's "Top Video Sales" charts. In 2003, Luke and his wife Adrian started Fireside International, a non-profit work that uses storytelling to better the lives of those suffering from poverty around the world. He co-founded Tilt23 Studios 2012 and is currently dedicated to mental health and wellness advocacy through both "What Lies Inside" and his podcast "Inside Out."
