The Deep Cut - Peter Gentile Talks 'You are Here', 9/11, Gander, Newfoundland and the 'Come From Away' Musical

Executive producer Peter Gentile calls into The Deep Cut with John Rocha to talk about his new documentary, "You Are Here: A Come From Away Story". It's an intimate feature film 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. While their stories inspired an extraordinary Broadway hit musical, Come From Away, the documentary, You Are Here, offers first-hand accounts of the great kindnesses and energetic resourcefulness the community showed their unexpected guests. Rocha and Peter Gentile explore what the experience was like for Peter to open up the wounds of 9/11 in order to tell this incredible and heartwarming story of humanity's kindness in the face of such evil. They also discuss documentary filmmaking and the unique obstacles this film posed for the residents, survivors, and crew as they revisited this story.
