Hollywood and Firefighting

Linked below is an article offering the Director’s insights into the Travolta movie “Ladder 49”.

Quoting the article,

“”The original script was set in New York,” the director explains. “I had lived in New York for 11 years. I would love to shoot a movie in New York. This wasn’t gonna be the one. Then it’s a movie about one day, obviously the defining moment in the New York City Fire Department’s history. And the whole point of this movie is that, while it is absolutely a tribute to the firefighters on 9/11, it’s also a tribute to the firefighters on 9/10 and 9/12 and 9/13. The world saw in an extreme the sacrifice and the bravery that they do every day.”
