This Monday, April 14, IUP alumnus David Altrogge will show and discuss his documentary film 3801 Lancaster in the HUB Ohio Room at 6:00 p.m.

On February 10, 2010, police raided the Women’s Medical Society in Philadelphia based on reports that its owner, Kermit Gosnell, was running a prescription “pill mill.”

“What they discovered, it’s almost out of one of the worst movies or horror novels that you can imagine,” said Philadelphia District Attorney R. Seth Williams.

3801 Lancaster tells the story of the landmark Kermit Gosnell case, chornicling the doctor’s unthinkable acts and the State of Pennsylvania’s failure to intervene despite persistent reports of wrong doing. The film has been featured on CNN, the BBC, and Fox News, and has won Best Short Form Film at the 2013 Justice Film Festival.
