Storyline

1913 Massacre follows singer/songwriter 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.' The film captures the last living witnesses of the 1913 tragedy, reconstructs Calumet's past from individual memories, family legends and songs, and traces the legacy of the tragedy to the present day, when the town --out of work, out of money, out of luck -- still struggles to come to terms with this painful episode from its past. Written by Louis V. Galdieri

Supremely Poignant Film
6 October 2012 | by (Houghton, Michigan) – See all my reviews

Beautifully written, filmed, produced. I will NOT spoil the movie for you, the viewers who have not yet seen this film. However, what I will say is: if you or anyone you are related to or anyone you just know, is connected to this incident in the history of the Copper Country of Michigan's Upper Peninsula - please go see this movie. It WILL move you. As I attended the first viewing of this film last evening in Calumet, Michigan - I was "wowed" by not only the film itself but by the interaction of the actual producers, Ken Ross and Louis Galdieri during the 'after-movie' question and answer session. The audience I was part of gave these gentlemen a standing ovation. Mr. Ross and Mr. Galdieri showed such respect to the audience which included several of the actual people who were in the movie itself. There were questions for which there were several differing answers, but arguably, even more questions for which there are no answers as yet.
