This is an early sketch of a scene in 1913 Massacre that ended up on the cutting room floor. It features some excerpts from an interview with Helen Winter.
At the time we interviewed her, Helen was in her 90s and, as she herself told us, she felt her life “ebbing away.” But she remembers the day she met Ella Reeve Bloor. This was probably in the 1920s.
Woody learned the story of the Italian Hall disaster from Mother Bloor’s book, We Are Many.
It was an honor to spend time with Helen and hear her stories. We thought we’d share this short sketch with you on International Women’s Day.
