Today is National Canadian Film Day 2021, and to celebrate the High Commission of Canada is streaming, for 24 hours only, the brilliant documentary: YOU ARE HERE: A COME FROM AWAY STORY.
The documentary details the incredible true story of the planes that were rerouted during 9/11 and shows how this town in Newfoundland came together to feed, shelter and support all of the stranded airline passengers for 6 days.
With interviews from a selection of airline passengers and residents of the town, this emotional and uplifting documentary tells the incredible true story that inspired the smash-hit musical Come From Away.
For those of you who have seen the musical you’ll see first hand what happened in Gander and meet those people the musical is based on. For those of you who haven’t seen the musical find out what makes Come From Away the must-see musical success that it is.
The West End production of the Olivier Award-winning musical Come From Away will reopen on 22 July 2021 at the Phoenix Theatre, London.
