Commemorating the 100th Birthday of Woody Guthrie
Directed by Ken Ross & Louis V. Galdieri
2011, USA, 61 minutes, documentary
In 1913, seventy-four people died in a still mysterious incident during a mining strike in Calumet, Michigan. The deaths prompted Woody Guthrie to write a famous ballad, "1913 Massacre." Nearly a century later, the filmmakers follow Woody's son, singer/songwriter Arlo Guthrie, back to Calumet and speak to the last living witnesses of the tragedy, discovering a town still struggling with its past.
Meet the Filmmakers: Directors Ken Ross and Louis Galdieri will discuss the film with special guest Nora Guthrie, daughter of Woody Guthrie and director of the Woody Guthrie Archive. Moderated by writer Daniel Wolff.
