Hershman Leeson’s latest film, winner of the Persistence of Vision Award at the 2017 SFFilm Festival and official selection of the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival in the Panorama category, focuses on renowned Cuban artist Tania Bruguera. The film documents the personal and emotional fallout of Bruguera’s unjust detentions through sessions with psychiatrist Dr Frank Ochberg, one of the founding fathers of modern psycho-traumatology.
