11'09"01 – A Film About 9/11 on 9/11

On September 11, Ascension Outreach and Resistance Cinema will feature eleven directors from 11 countries who each contributed a short film reflecting on the events of September 11, 2001. Themes include:

  • A village teacher in Iran tries to explain to her young students what’s happened; city kids in Burkina Faso think they’ve spotted Osama Bin Laden;
  • a deaf Frenchwoman in Manhattan writes a Dear John letter to a man who has left that morning for work in the World Trade Center;
  • a Chilean remembers Allende;
  • a mother endures more than her son’s death.

Come join us — 7pm on September 11th 2018; admission is FREE — for what is sure to be a sensitive tribute. [ More → ]
