PRISONER OF HER PAST tells the haunting story of a secret childhood trauma resurfacing, sixty years later, to unravel the life of Sonia Reich. The film follows her son, Chicago Tribune jazz critic Howard Reich, as he journeys across the United States and Eastern Europe to uncover why his mother believes the world is conspiring to kill her. Along the way, he finds a family he never knew he had.
This film is the first to expose a little-known illness: late-onset Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. PRISONER OF HER PAST examines the disorder’s devastating effect on families. But it also shows programs that are aiding young trauma survivors of Hurricane Katrina – and how such early interventions may have helped Howard’s mother.

Doors Open at 5:15, Screening at 5:45PM
Film is 1 hour and will be followed by a post screening discussion with the filmmaker and panelists from local community agencies.

Event is FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC
