HBO Releasing New Documentary Triangle: Remembering the Fire

Posted by Karen Benardello On February - 25 - 2011 1 Comment

To coincide with the 100th anniversary, and to chronicle the history, of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in New York City, HBO will be premiering its new documentary ‘Triangle: Remembering the Fire’ on March 21, 2011. Emmy Award-winning filmmakers Marc Levin and Daphne Pinkerson worked on the movie to tell the stories of the victim, survivors, employees and managers of what was considered the worst New York workplace disaster of the 20th century. Descendants of the victims tell the stories of their ancestors in the documentary

The fire helped bring about widespread reforms in the workplace, and helped start the modern labor movement. However, HBO is hoping to get the message out to its viewers that with the one-year anniversary of the West Virginia mining accident and the BP Oil Spill, the loss of the 146 factory workers in the fire is still not being taken seriously. ‘Triangle: Remembering the Fire’ hopes to show that major and smaller businesses alike are still putting their workers’ lives at risk everyday, as the government isn’t enforcing safety rules.
