A riveting historical documentary that unearths untold stories about a preventable and tragic fire

With never-before-seen photographs and new information about those who were there, filmmakers Marc Levin and Daphne Pinkerson bring to life the victims of the Triangle Fire in New York City in 1911. Using interviews of the descendants of workers, owners, politicians and firemen to tell the story of the tragedy, the filmmakers make the story fresh and dynamic. The recreation of the fire itself is done with painstaking detail, including the grisly sight of desperate workers jumping to their deaths. Images of family members identifying charred remains are riveting. Political and social context inform the storytelling about the fire that ultimately helped to galvanize reform in the country.
