National WWII Museum Screening in Louisiana

The audience here has a unique perspective on “Prisoner of Her Past,” since the last scenes of the film are set in New Orleans, where teenagers who survived Hurricane Katrina discuss their own traumas. After the screening, the audience zeroes in on the Katrina footage, with many people discussing their own Katrina traumas – six years after the storm. The conversation underscores the ways in which trauma clings to those who experience it.
