LOS ANGELES, CA (6/3/ 2011) Gage and Gage Productions cordially invites you to view the heartfelt documentary FROM THE GROUND UP, the emotional journey of five 9/11 FDNY widows who honor their hero husbands by turning tragedy into triumph.


Acknowledging the courage and accomplishments of those who survived, FROM THE GROUND UP shares the journeys that resulted in a regained faith in humanity. Healing, acceptance and the meaning of life are found as these women make sense out of madness and mourning while the world watched - taking two steps forward for one step back, through tears, depression and laughter.

In FROM THE GROUND UP, you follow a path to find strength, learn lessons and see how these women coped and now give back, raising funds for libraries, children's foundations, homes for autistic children, playgrounds, edible gardens, and even giving guided tours of Ground Zero.

FROM THE GROUND UP

10 Years After 9/11

wtc_lights_of_hope"The brave are those who see imminent danger and still walk into it." That's how Maureen Fanning, widow of NY Firefighter, Battalion Chief Jack Fanning, describes the selfless sacrifice the FDNY made on September 11, 2001. 343 New York City firefighters died in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. The bravest of the brave; they were fathers, sons, brothers, and most were husbands.

 

"FROM THE GROUND UP 10 Years After 9/11" is the story of their widows. It is the story of trying to make sense of madness, of comforting their children and mourning their losses while the world watches. It's the journey, taking two steps forward and one step back, through tears, depression and laughter, to triumph through tragedy. It's the story of honoring their heroes in the most fitting personal ways they can imagine.
