Saint of 9/11, which follows the life of Father
Mychal Judge and his heroic acts during the September 11
terrorist attacks, will screen in 13 cities for the
National 5th Anniversary Remembrance. The film has
already premiered at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival.
Father Judge, who
was gay and an AIDS activist, became a national hero
when he decided to assist fire department and civilian
victims during the terrorist attacks on New York City.
The 13 cities airing the movie are Boston; Denver; Ft.
Lauderdale, Fla.; Kansas City, Mo.; Milwaukee;
Minneapolis; Nashville; Patchogue, N.Y.; Philadelphia;
Pittsburgh; Salt Lake City; San Francisco; and Seattle.
Also, many of these cities have invited local
firefighters to attend the screenings.
In San Francisco
the movie is being sponsored by the San Francisco Police
Department, San Francisco Fire Fighters Local 798, and the
American Red Cross in San Francisco. In Kansas City,
the Interfaith Council as well as the Human
Relations Commission are sponsoring the film, with the
mayor declaring a citywide moment of silence before the
screening. (The Advocate)
