We are proud to present Filmmaker John Borowski as our next speaker in the Comfort Society series of talks sponsored by Intelligentsia Coffee. Borowski will talk about the facts and fiction surrounding Chicago's own serial killer, H.H. Holmes and will also discuss his experiences with other serial killer cases.
John Borowski is an award winning independent filmmaker whose works have garnered international acclaim and are distributed internationally on dvd, television, and streaming. Borowski’s “historical horror” trilogy of documentary films focus on late nineteenth and early twentieth century serial killers. In Serial Killer Culture (2014), Borowski studies the fascination of serial killers from the perspectives of artists and collectors. His work has been covered by television (Biography, PBS, Monumental Mysteries, CBS News, Wild Chicago), print (Psychology Today, Bizarre Magazine U.K. Variety, LA Weekly, Chicago Sun-Times, Ain't It Cool News), and radio (Mancow Show). In addition to lecturing at prestigious venues such as San Diego State University, Indiana State University and Chicago Historical Society, Borowski was also contacted by the Wichita Police to assist in the BTK serial killer investigation. His films can be viewed on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and itunes.
Comfort Society is a series of talks on anything from the useful to the unexpected. Talks take place Sundays at 11:00 am and coffee is served.
