The documentary film, In our Son’s Name, follows Phyllis and Orlando Rodriguez over more than a decade as they struggle with grief and search for meaning after their son, Greg, is killed in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2011.
Their remarkable, transformative journey takes them through public opposition to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, testimony for the defense at Zacarias Moussaoui’s sentencing trial, friendship with Moussaoui’s mother, work with convicted felons, and speaking out against anti-Muslim actions and the death penalty.
Guest speaker, Fr. Michael Lapsley of South Africa will lead a
discussion of themes in the film, including challenging conventional concepts of justice and healing, and the potential of trauma to inspire, not defeat, the human spirit.
Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
