The screening of 10 films in the Winsor Room during the summer of 2019 honor real people and real places, many within the state of Pennsylvania. The film selection exemplifies resilience, witnesses our industrial past, praises literary excellence, and reminds us of the importance of living in harmony with one another and with nature. All films are free and no registration is required. This is the first film in the series. Admission is free.

The Cut, was produced by Joe Magee, Roger Bruce and Art Swanlund of Irish American Films and directed by Shawn Swords with William Watson, Ph.D., professor of History at Immaculata University. It is the newest and most extensive coverage of the Duffy’s Cut story and it places the events at Duffy’s Cut in the context of other 1832-era deaths of Irish immigrant laborers elsewhere in Chester County, according to Dr. Watson. The film discusses the possibility of the site being the location of the worst mass murder in Pennsylvania history.
