WE ARE FAMILY DOCUMENTARY with dates and show times below!
The Screening Room, NYC
I saw this film at its premiere in NYC and want everyone to see it.
The documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to a standing ovation.
The Story: The documentary is an uplifting story about the 9-11 tragedy
interlaced with footage from a re-recording of Nile Rodgers legendary song We
Are Family in NYC and LA with over 200 actors and musicians... The story
combines heartfelt interviews with the actors and musicians speaking about
the impact of 9-11 on themselves and the world, and is a compelling,
inspiring and powerful story about how people come together and unite at a
time of need to speak out for harmony and tolerance.
Importance: It's really a wonderful film, which I hope will play a role in
healing the world and building a stronger global community....
Who's Who: Emmy Award winner Danny Schechter directed the film, Tom Silverman
produced the film and Spike Lee directed the music video’Ä¶. Among the 200
participants - Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Tyson Beckford, Macauley
Caulkin, Steven Van Zandt, Bernadette Peters, Joel Grey, Patti Labelle,
Dionne Warwick, Aida Turturro, Roberta Flack, David Hasselhoff, Carmen
Electra, Taye Diggs, Maury Povitch, Montel Williams, John McEnroe, Mark
Jackson, Ananda Lewis, Matthew Modine, Rosie Perez, Nenad Bach and many many more.
In addition, the film features common folk in New York and Los Angeles -- as
well as pop stars, actors, industry bigwigs -- singing their hearts out and
sharing their feelings. Rodgers says, "He welcomed people whose lives were
directly affected and people who were directly affecting our lives."
Purpose: The film was created as one of the products of the We Are Family
Foundation (started by Nile Rodgers and Tom Silverman). Legendary
songwriter/producer Nile Rodgers wrote the song We Are Family, and Sister
Sledge made it famous, and it remains a song with great meaning for many
people globally. The film will be used to raise money for the foundation,
which is both giving money to those impacted by 9-11 and also launching
educational programs for schools, teachers and parents to raise consciousness
and broaden understanding about what it takes to work together on global
tolerance and understanding.
