Prisoner of Her Past

4 years later, Prisoner of Her Past still going strong

Since its release in 2010, Prisoner of Her Past continues to engage communities across the country. To date, the film has been broadcast more than 510 times in 140 markets across the U.S.

As Howard Reich writes in a new update, "It all began as a Chicago Tribune article in 2003, evolved into a book in 2006 and became a documentary film in 2010 – and the story shows no signs of slowing down. The audience only seems to grow."
