Right There, interview with filmmaker Florence Buchanan

Right ThereA really powerful short film, Right There interviews the children of a school near Ground Zero, 10 years after the 9/11 tragedy.  Florence Buchanan called in to tell us all about the film, which includes her daughter amongst the interviewees.

About Right There:

“On the 10th anniversary of 9/11, a group of teenagers came back to PS 234, their old elementary school, 3 blocks north of the World Trade Center. They were little kids who were right there on 9/11, and they talked in one of their old classrooms. What do they remember of that day? How has 9/11 affected their opinions? How do they see the future?”

Cat & Florence at the screening

Cat was lucky enough to moderate the Q&A following the shorts program which screened Right There at the Sonoma International Film Festival.  She then got to spend a few minutes chatting with Florence Buchanan face to face.  What a delightful afternoon.
