CHARLESTON, SC SCREENING: In Our Son’s Name/ En Nombre de Nuestro Hijo

THREE separate screenings are scheduled for

  1. 9:30 am – 11am
  2. 12:30pm – 2pm
  3. 6pm – 7:30pm

IN OUR SON’S NAME is an intimate portrait of Phyllis and Orlando Rodríguez, co- founders of September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows whose son, Greg, died with thousands of others in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The award-winning film also features Talat Hamdani, whose heroic son, Mohammad Salman, perished rescuing others yet he was wrongly deemed a suspect due to his Muslim faith The bereaved parents choose reconciliation and nonviolence over vengeance and begin a transformative journey that both confirms and challenges their convictions.

They speak out against war in Iraq and Afghanistan, publicly oppose the death penalty of avowed 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui and befriend his mother. As their search for meaning evolves they speak out against anti-Muslim actions and find peace in working with prison inmates. Their marriage strengthens, and they reach a deeper understanding of their rebellious son, who had just begun to find his way when his life was cut short.

The award-winning film mixes in-depth interviews with on-location footage and striking archival photographs and video to create a deeply personal story that invites us to re-consider conventional concepts of justice and healing.

We are proud to announce the arrival of a new version of In Our Son’s Name with subtitles in Spanish: En Nombre de Nuestro Hijo. With this new version we will be able to reach broader audiences to spread our message of nonviolence and reconciliation. If you don’t have a copy and would like to set up a screening in your community, please contact the Peaceful Tomorrows office.
