'Press For Truth' Opens in Director's Home Town

Author Paul Thompson, director Ray Nowosielski, and computer animator Erik Potter were on-hand tonight in Nowosielski's hometown of Indianapolis for the downtown Hollywood Bar & Filmworks opening of '9/11 Press For Truth', where by chance Tippi Hedren (of Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' fame) was present. During the Q&A afterward, Tom Cochrun, news director for Indiana's CBS affiliate, came up to the front to praise the film and graciously acknowledge the need for a greater effort on the part of the news media.

Indianapolis television viewers who tuned in this evening to Cochrun's 'News 8' on CBS-affiliate WISH-TV also caught a three minute segment on the five o'clock broadcast about 'Press For Truth' featuring an original interview with the director by reporter Shana Kelly.

The Indianapolis opening's after-party at Subterra Lounge was hosted by DJs Indiana Jones and Helicon. The movie will run daily at Hollywood Bar & Filmworks through the 9/11 5th anniversary on Monday.

Back in New York City, executive producer Rory O'Connor attended to the first public showing at Two Boots Pioneer Theater this evening. The movie also began it's run at the historic Boardman's Art Theater in Champaign, Illinois. Thompson and Nowosielski will be speaking there tomorrow afternoon, so if you live in central Illinois, please come see them.

And if you live in New York City, Washington, D.C., or Portland, OR, check the schedule for the where and when regarding public openings of the movie on Sunday at theaters in your town.
