THE BOYS OF KINGSBRIDGE
USA | 2012 | 1:00 | Documentary
This film presents four unique perspectives of an important day in American History. If you want to know what it was like at ground zero on 9/11, this film will give you first hand, eyewitness accounts from my buddies, Eddie, Mike, Danny and Brendan. But it is much more than just a moment to moment narrative of the events. It shows the humanity of these guys through the lens of our childhood together.
We all grew up in a wonderful neighborhood in the Bronx know as Kingsbridge where we learned the benefits of community and importance of personal responsibility. Heroes are those who take charge in a crisis and some of these guys became heroes on that day. Sept 11 2001 can be looked at as a terrible day of loss but it can also be looked at a day of heroes. While most of us sat on our couch in shock, these guys were in the thick of it all.
Basically, this is the story of how four guys who grew up on the same block ended up on the same block on 9/11 and how they reacted. It’s a great American story that needs to be told.
