June 17th is the 60th anniversary of the collapse of the Ironworkers Memorial Second Narrows Crossing. The tragedy claimed the lives of 18 workers who plunged 100 ft into the waters below, and a 19th, a diver who died later during the search for the bodies. George Orr's film is built around rediscovered, never-before-seen 16mm colour footage shot by young draftsman Peter Hall as he chronicled the construction, and includes interviews with Hall and remaining survivors.
World Premiere with Special Guests.
