Father Mychal Judge was a beloved chaplain of the Fire Department of New
York, who lost his life on September 11, 2001. The news photograph of his
body being carried from the World Trade Center became an iconic image of
heroism and sacrifice.
"Saint of 9/11" tells the story of Father Mychal's life through those
deeply touched by his ministry, from the powerless to the dispossessed. The
film reveals Father Mychal as complex, intense, humble and deeply loved,
through interviews of friends and colleagues and narration of Father Mychal's
own words by legendary actor Sir Ian McKellen.
"Saint of 9/11" is directed by Glenn Holsten, executive produced by
Malcolm Lazin, and produced by Equality Forum, a national nonprofit GLBT civil
rights organization. Holsten, Lazin and Equality Forum also collaborated on
