As part of the Chicago History Museum's Project Sunday monthly documentary film screening, the museum presents "Secret Life, Secret Death."
Ten years ago, artist Genevieve Davis was rifling through old family archives when she made a fascinating discovery. During the Roaring '20s, her grandmother ran a Wisconsin Northwoods brothel for the Chicago mob at the height of their notoriety. Using present-day interviews, period reenactments, historical photographs, and vintage songs this unique docudrama serves as history, fiction, and family memoir where you’ll learn that there is more to this story. 84 Minutes.
Filmmaker Genevieve Davis leads a discussion after the film.
The showing is free to members and is included in the price of admission to the museum for non members.
