Seneca Falls, NY - Women's Rights National Historical Park is pleased to announce that it will show the PBS documentary Benjamin Franklin this Friday and Saturday, January 13 and 14, at 12:00 noon.

Benjamin Franklin explores the life of a man who rose from humble beginnings to become one of America's preeminent politicians in the 18th century. A remarkable Enlightenment figure, his contributions to science, diplomacy, and other fields made him one of the most influential individuals of his time.

The film is being shown as part of Women's Rights National Historical Park's first Winter Film Festival. The park exists to commemorate and preserve the events of the First Women's Rights Convention that was held in Seneca Falls in 1848. "We are proud to be part of the National Park system, and we invite everyone to join us in celebrating our shared history and culture through film," said Superintendent Tammy Duchesne.

Benjamin Franklin is approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes long and intended for a general audience. Visitors are welcome to join us for all or part of the movie. All Winter Film Festival movies will be shown at 12:00 noon on Fridays and Saturdays, November through April, in the Guntzel Theater, located at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center at 136 Fall Street in downtown Seneca Falls. Because film lengths vary, visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing. All park programs are free and open to the public. For more information, please call (315) 568-0024. You can also follow the park's social media sites for Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/womensrightsnps) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/#!/WomensRightsNPS) to learn about our upcoming events and programs.
