Event Details

Imagine surviving a war or earthquake only to be stricken by nightmares, paranoia and a very real sense that it’s happening over and over. Sometimes the effects take years to fully manifest.

This devastating and little understood condition, known as Late Onset Post Traumatic Disorder, is at the heart of the documentary Prisoner of Her Past, showing free at the Public Library’s Main Branch.

The film is 1 hour and will be followed by a discussion with the filmmaker, Howard Reich and panelists from local community agencies.

Prisoners 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.
