More than 300 years ago Germans from the Palatinate, a region in southwestern Germany, left their ancestral home to seek a new life in Pennsylvania. Many eventually made their way to the Shenandoah Valley as well! They brought along their unique dialect, their culture and customs, which eventually came to be known as Pennsylvania Dutch. Even today, almost half a million people still speak a variant of this unique language.

A German film team along with protagonist and YouTuber Douglas Madenford went in search of the common roots in Pennsylvania and the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate (Rheinland-Pfalz). The result is a highly entertaining and informative documentary film called “Hiwwe wie Driwwe” — or “Over Here as Over There”.


The filmmaker team, led by producer Christian Schega, will be on site for a lively Q&A session.
