TIFF Ajax 2nd Reel presents “You Are Here: A Come From Away Story”

Friday, January 18, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$10

You Are Here – A Come From Away Story is an intimate feature documentary that goes deep into the community of Gander, Newfoundland where 38 airliners carrying over 6,500 passengers were forced to land after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. The film pulls back the emotional layers surrounding the five days during which the community housed, fed and cared for the dislocated passengers (or the “come from aways” in Newfoundland parlance).

While their stories were the inspiration for the extraordinary Broadway hit musical, Come From Away, the documentary, You Are Here, reveals first-hand accounts of the great kindnesses and energetic resourcefulness the community showed their unexpected guests. Their emotional and sometimes humorous story of compassion and generosity, born of a long history of rescuing and welcoming shipwrecked sailors, resonates with a legacy of healing and reconciliation for the world – especially for the survivors of those murdered on 9/11, and for the first responders who lost their own lives saving others on that fateful day.

Bar and concessions available for purchase. Doors open at 7:30pm.

Tickets available at St. Francis Centre Box Office, the Ajax and McLean Community Centres, Audley Recreation Centre and online.

For more information, call 905-619-2529, ext. 2787 (ARTS).
