NYC Premiere of "Man in Red Bandana"
Wednesday, September 09, 2015
Event hosted by: Man in Red Bandana
Man In Red Bandana is a documentary film about the inspirational story of an American hero … Welles Remy Crowther. Welles worked on the 104thfloor of the South Tower and saved many people on September 11th. Tragically, he died that day but his heroics only became known eight months later as a result of an ordinary item … a red bandana.
The film re-traces Welles’ courageous actions that fateful day, and examines the many people (family, friends and strangers) who have been inspired by Welles’ actions and the unique ways in which they have honored him.
The film is the debut effort of writer, director and producer Matthew J. Weiss. He first learned of Welles’ remarkable story over lunch with Jefferson Crowther, Welles’ father. Matthew Weiss was amazed and inspired. He quickly decided that everyone should hear this story and obtained the Crowther’s permission and blessing to make Man In Red Bandana.
Filming started in April 2011 and was completed toward the end of 2013. Our film crews have been in Nyack, Ontario, Canada, Atlanta, Georgia, New York City, Asbury Park, New Jersey, Orlando, Florida, Albany, New York, Newton, Massachusetts, among other places, all in an attempt to produce the most comprehensive piece about Welles ever made. Editing has been continuing for over a year and should be completed by the end of 2014. The film is scheduled to be completed in early 2015.
