Intro, Q & A with Bay Area’s Emmy-winning Ken Ellis, Co-Executive Producer. 9/11 Press For Truth.
Following the attacks of September 11th, grieving families waged a tenacious battle against those who sought to bury the truth about the attack, including the Bush administration. In “9/11 Press For Truth,” those most effected by the tragedy, including three of the “Jersey Girls,” tell the story of how they took on the powers in Washington and won. They forced an investigation, only to subsequently watch the 9/11 Commission fail to even ask their most urgent questions.
Adapting Paul Thompson’s Complete 9/11 Timeline, the film stitches together news clips, buried stories and government press conferences, revealing a pattern of official lies, deception and spin. Thompson’s narrative presents a different picture of 9/11, one that raises new, more pressing questions.
What actions were taken by top government officials who received dozens of specific warnings before the attack? Was Bin Laden and his top al Qaeda leadership allowed to escape in Afghanistan? What has been the reason for obscuring the evidence regarding the Pakistani connection? Why, five years later, are so many of the families’ questions still unanswered?
Tickets are $10. and proceeds benefit Cooperative Research and the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance. For preview, go to http://www.911pressfortruth.com.
