The demographic cialis online canadian has been immense, spanning college-age to middle school; black, white, Latino and Asian; American-born

and African immigrants.

Their comments have been striking.

A friend of his from Ghana echoed the thought.

“My family was very secretive about how we lived in the past, when I was very young,” said the TCC student, comparing

his family’s traumatic experiences to those my mother, and her cousins Leon and Fanka, suffered 60 years earlier.

The insights of these young adults suggested that they could see elements of their own stories – their own lives – in “Prisoner of Her Past.” Which is precisely why we made the film: to shed light on childhood trauma, past, present and future.

But you don’t need heartburn and cialis to have suffered a trauma as a child – or canadian online pharmacy tylenol 3 even to be in college – to hear this film’s message.

and others asked pointed questions:

“Were you surprised that some of the kids in New Orleans were acting just like your mother?” (Shattered, actually.)

At one point, I was walking between classes in a St. Louis school, and a group of students surrounded me in the hallway to online viagra india ask more questions. Minute by minute, more kids gathered, to talk about the film.

Now I was sure we had made contact.

Since then, invitations to bring the film to various public and religious schools have been picking up.

I had the pleasure of being the guest of the Kos International Health Film Festival for the Greek premiere of Prisoner of Her Past on September 5th this year, on the island of Kos. There were about 60 people at the screening – a very respectable number for an out-of-competition film at such a faraway festival.

The audience was extremely passionate about Prisoner and we had a lively Q&A after the screening. There was a great question from the audience about the camera’s relationship to Sonia, and her habit of directly addressing the camera. I told them about how Sonia would always stop talking when I turned the camera off in order to change tape. Once the camera was back on my shoulder and rolling, she would continue what she was saying. This is how we knew that on some level, Sonia was an active participant in the making of Prisoner of Her Past.

The post-screening conversation continued in the lobby and clearly many people in the audience were greatly moved. Luckily, they had free samples of a few items provided by festival sponsors in the theater lobby – condoms and Kleenex. As you’d image, our audience went for the Kleenex.

The Kos Health Film Festival is great and allows lots of time to hang out with other filmmakers to discuss issues like the consent of film subjects who have diminished capacity. I saw documentaries on diverse topics – from the politics of menstruation and orgasm, to the vibrant lives of the elderly through dance and song.

Although Kos is really a festival for talking about film and aesthetics rather than business, I did manage to make some contacts who will likely allow us to broadcast the film in Israel. A doctor took a copy of Prisoner of Her Past and is going to set up a showing at her hospital in Kos. There was also interest in future screenings of other Kartemquin films, including The Chicago Maternity Center Story, In the Family, Stevie, and The Interrupters.
