The latest pre-screening segment of Slatersville: America’s First Mill Village will be held this Sunday, Feb. 7 at 1 p.m. as part of the Museum of Work and Culture’s Virtual Valley Talks series.
Valley Talks are biweekly historical lectures offered by the museum free of charge. Slatersville is a historical documentary series by critically acclaimed filmmaker Christian de Rezendes, and the event will feature its sixth work-in-progress piece, “Henry Plimpton Kendall: They Will All Be My Friends.” The segment will focus on Kendall, who purchased the Slatersville mill and village in 1915 and brought it from a state of low morale to a New England renaissance.
The full series is scheduled to have its world premiere on Rhode Island PBS in the fall of this year.
