Now Return Us to Normal
a work-in-progress by filmmaker Leslie Koren


After experiencing flashbacks surrounding her years at a behavior modification school in Oakley, Utah, a filmmaker contacts former classmates to help connect the dots of her disjointed memories. Compelled by their conversations to return to Utah, she tracks down those responsible for her mistreatment looking for answers.

A new transplant to Pittsburgh, Koren will be in attendance. She presents Now Return Us to Normal as a work-in-progress.  Come offer your comments as she nears completion of this feature-length documentary.
