Join us as Director Roz Sohnen presents and discusses her film, “An American Quilt- Stitching Together our 9/11 Memories”

On January 30, 2018 at 6:30 pm, the 9/11 Tribute Museum will present a film screening and discussion of Roz Sohnen’s touching documentary, “An American Quilt- Stitching Together our 9/11 Memories”. This 32 minute long documentary tells the stories of seven families, who lost loved ones on 9/11 and dealt with their grief by creating memorial quilt panels.

This project which I began in 2002 was a labor of love about the lives of ordinary people coping with extraordinary circumstances and refusing to remain powerless.

– Roz Sohnen, Director

The memories shared in the film are unique and personal:

  • Leroy Homer Jr. – co-pilot United Flight 93, plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
  • Lt. Steven Bates – a firefighter who had no immediate family.
  • Paul Beatini – an engineer, didn’t work in the towers, was there for a meeting.
  • Sandra Wright – had just become a grandmother, commuted four hours daily.
  • Peter Anton Klein – a first generation American, had just married.
  • Clive Ian Thompson – who brought his family here from London and had
    already survived the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 1993.
  • Vincent Boland Jr. – 25, who had recently moved out of his family’s home in
    New Jersey, eager to begin a new life in Manhattan.

After the screening, the filmmaker will talk about how creating art provided her with a window into the lives lost. This program is free and open to the public.
