The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture is launching a week of 9/11 remembrance. On Monday, September 9th, 2019 at 7:00 PM there will be an advanced screening of You Are Here: A Come From Far Away Story presented by Justice Film Festival and MDF Productions.
After the screening, there will be a discussion with the documentary’s award winning producer, Pete Gentile and cast members from Broadway’s Come From Away.
During the chaos on 9/11, 38 planes carrying 6,500 individuals arrived at Gander, Newfoundland which is a small Canadian town. The locals came together to host this group of strangers that would leave as family.
The documentary celebrates this small town which demonstrated hospitality, heroism and humanity on 9/11. The same events inspired the hit Broadway music Come Far Away.
The event is free and open to the public by RSVPing on their website.
