Now screening worldwide

Critically acclaimed as “one of the most emotionally wrenching yet rewarding films” by the Huffington Post, Prisoner of Her Past explores a topic virtually untouched in popular culture and scientific literature: the delayed effects of childhood trauma.

This new film from Gordon Quinn, Jerry Blumenthal, Joanna Rudnick, and Zak Piper –  with Chicago Tribune columnist Howard Reich – is making its way around the world after a wildly successful 15-screening premiere run at the Gene Siskel Film Center (Chicago, Illinois) in April and gorgeous Mother’s Day event at the Talking Pictures Festival (Evanston, Illinois.)

Prisoner of Her Past screens at the DocMiami International Film Festival during Memorial Day weekend and later this Summer at the Kos International Health Film Festival in Greece.

Chicagoland viewers may join Reich and Quinn for a theatrical screening and discussion presented by the After Hours Film Society at the Tivoli Theater in Downer’s Grove, Illinois on Monday, July 12 at 7:30 PM.

A considerable variety of local and international engagements are lining up for Autumn, including a showcase of the film at the World Conference of Child Survivors of the Holocaust in November.

A nationwide broadcast of Prisoner of Her Past will take place next Spring, in concurrence with Holocaust Remembrance Day.
