OSSINING, N.Y -- In commemoration of 9/11, the Ossining Documentary and Discussion Series will offer a free screening and discussion of "In Our Son's Name" on Sept. 15 at 6:15 p.m. at the Budarz Theatre in the Ossining Library.
Two of the panelists are also subjects of the documentary. "In Our Son's Name" tells the story of Orlando and Phyllis Rodriguez, whose son Greg perished in the attacks.
The couple spoke out against suspicion and violence directed toward Muslims, and, trying to understand the causes and consequences of violence, they began to work with violent inmates at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining.
Rev. Ron Lemmert, former chaplain at Sing Sing, will also participate in the panel.. The Rodriguez family will discuss their experiences and what has happened since the film was released.
The Ossining Documentary and Discussion Series is organized by a volunteer committee, with the goal of bringing the community together, "one film at a time." This film will be the series' 38th screening.
