Film Screening “You Are Here”
You Are Here – A Come From Away Story is an intimate feature documentary that goes deep into the community of Gander, Newfoundland where 38 airliners carrying over 6,500 passengers were forced to land after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. The film pulls back the emotional layers surrounding the five days during which the community housed, fed and cared for the dislocated passengers.
While their stories inspired an extraordinary Broadway hit musical, Come From Away, the documentary, You Are Here, offers first-hand accounts of the great kindnesses and energetic resourcefulness the community showed their unexpected guests. Their emotional and sometimes humorous stories of compassion and generosity, born of a long history of rescuing and welcoming shipwrecked sailors, resonate with a legacy of healing and reconciliation for the world – especially for the survivors of those murdered on 9/11 and for the first responders who lost their own lives saving others on that fateful day.
From our friends at the Canada-US Business Council Chicago, on one night only, Wednesday September 11th, the Canadian documentary “You Are Here: A Come From Away Story” will show on over 700 screens across the US.
