Martha in Lattimore News
An updated 30-minute version of Martha in Lattimore is now available for online viewing and download. The DFP is making the film available to libraries, museums, and individual viewers as a way to share Martha Mason's story with as wide an audience as possible.
Martha Mason lived in an iron lung for over 60 years. Despite this, she was able to write a book, send email, surf the Internet, and maintain strong connection with friends, church, and the entire community of Lattimore, North Carolina. This award-winning documentary, produced by DFP co-director Mary Dalton, explores Martha's past, her philosophy of life, and her relationship with the world.
