Co-directors Ken Ross (Romemu member) and Louis Galdieri will screen their documentary 1913 Massacre. The film follows Arlo Guthrie to the town of Calumet, a once-thriving mining town on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula still haunted by the tragic events that inspired Woody Guthrie’s ballad, ‘1913 Massacre.’  Out of work, out of money, out of luck, the town struggles to survive while trying to live down its tragic past. (66 minutes). Discussion with the filmmakers will follow the screening.

Open your eyes and gain new perspectives on the world while sampling some vodka and herring with friends. Film topics have included the environment, hunger, women’s rights and income inequality. While the films are not explicitly Jewish, the conversation inevitably intertwines torah, spirit and social justice.

Free and open to all
