Joanna is also producing Prisoner of Her Past, the story of Chicago Tribune journalist Howard Reich's attempt to uncover his mother’s tragic Holocaust childhood in order to understand why she is reliving it, 60 years later; and A Good Man, a feature-length co-production with Kartemquin, the Ravinia Festival, Media Process Group and American Masters, following the creation of a major dance piece by the choreographer Bill T. Jones on Abraham Lincoln to premiere at Ravinia in September of 2009.
Artistic Director and founding member of Kartemquin Films, Gordon Quinn has been making documentaries for over 45 years. Roger Ebert, of the Chicago Sun Times, called his first film Home for Life (1966) "an extraordinarily moving documentary." With Home for Life Gordon established the direction he would take for the next four decades, making cinéma vérité films that investigate and critique society by documenting the unfolding lives of real people.
