You Are Here: A Come From Away Story tells the tale of 6,600 people unexpectedly landing in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland with no place to stay.

For the 11,000 people of Gander, this incredible event happened in the wake of the 9/11 attacks when nearly 40 planes were rerouted and grounded there.

Directed by Moze Mossanen, the documentary shows how the people from this town came together to feed, shelter and support all of the stranded airline passengers for 6 days.

Featuring interviews from a number of airline passengers and residents of the town, this film tells the true story that inspired the musical Come From Away.

You can catch “You are Here” at Trestle Brewery on Wednesday, April 17th at 9 Great North Road in Parry Sound.

Film rolls at 7:00 pm
