Independent Film "Secret Life" Set In Northern WI And Chicago Showing In Sturgeon Bay

Door County movie goers have a chance to see something "different" this week at the Sturgeon Bay Cinema.

Independent docudrama film "Secret Life Secret Death" is playing once daily through Thursday at the local theater. Producer and Director Genevieve Davis was at the theater for a question and answer session following a showing of the film Friday. She says with the quantity of Hollywood Blockbusters released, independent films such as hers are becoming more popular.

The film blends fact and fiction in a family memoir filled with underworld history surrounding Davis' grandmother Minnie Frank. It takes place around the time of prohibition and the Great Depression and follows' Frank's life around gangster filled Chicago and into Northern Wisconsin where she ran the brothel the "Hollywood Hotel." Though the brothel was not in the immediate area, Davis says the culture of rum running and prostitution is something those who lived through it all over northern Wisconsin can connect to.

Davis says though the movie is a snapshot of history, and is unique in many ways; it isn't designed for the viewer to take away any one specific forced idea.

"Secret Life Secret Death" is showing at 4:30 PM this weekend and 5:30 every evening during the week at the Sturgeon Bay Cinema off of 18th avenue and Alabama Street.
