2017 ONLINE FILM FESTIVAL | The Collinwood Fire | PBS

Official site: http://to.pbs.org/2tjshnZ | #PBSFilmFest

On March 4, 1908, the Collinwood Elementary School burned to the ground, trapping and killing 172 school children, two teachers and one rescuer. The Collinwood Fire reanimates the inferno through the sensationalist newspaper headlines of the day and the silent moving picture images of an aspiring young filmmaker cranking his camera at the blaze.
