SECRET LIFE, SECRET DEATH is a critically acclaimed, award winning film, which has played from Chicago to LA, and London to Rome. With its themes of Wisconsin History, trafficking, alcoholism, and the lethal burden of family secrets carried into the present, the film educates and provokes. The movie shows the unglamorized underworld of gangsters in Wisconsin and Chicago.
A Question and Answer session with Director, Genevieve Davis, will follow the screening. Davis spent 10 years researching the story behind the movie. She wrote the book of the true story, also called Secret Life, Secret Death.
