SUMMONED: Frances Perkins and the General Welfare is a one-hour film biography of FDR Labor Secretary Perkins, who was the longest serving Labor Secretary in U.S. history. Ms Perkins was born in Boston and raised in Worcester Massachusetts, but she spent much of her childhood at the family home on the Damariscotta River in Newcastle, Maine. Throughout her life she returned often to this quiet and contemplative retreat.
The film will explore her dramatic life through the diverse voices of those who knew her, as well as those who know most about her. Interviews began in the spring of 2012, and continued in a number of cities, including Boston, New York, and Washington. Research was conducted at Columbia University, The Frances Perkins Center, The National Archive and various archives throughout the country.
