EAST GREENWICH, RI-- March 09, 2017 - reports that Verdi Productions, along with Manga Entertainment announce that they will release the 9/11 documentary entitled "Man in Red Bandana" in early September 2017. The film will hit theaters and VOD platforms throughout the USA in a limited day and date release. This will be the third film released by Verdi Productions over the last two years, following Ten Thousand Saints, starring  Ethan Hawke and Hailee Steinfeld and Bad Hurt, staring Theo Rossi, Karen Allen and Ashley Williams.


The film was written and directed by Matthew J. Weiss with Chad A. Verdi and Joshua Sason producing. Executive Producers are Michelle Verdi, Neil Cortel and Tom DeNucci. The film editors are Doug Forbes and Sam Eilertsen. The film is narrated by Gwyneth Paltrow with Lyle Lovett performing an original song.


Man in Red Bandana tells the incredible story of Welles Crowther, a 24-year old civilian who gave his life saving others in the South Tower of the World Trade Center. His heroics included carrying a woman on his shoulder down 17 flights of stairs. His bravery and courage only came to light eight months later due to an ordinary object ... a red bandana. Through interviews, archive footage, re-creations and animation, the film depicts Welles' story in an engaging and educational manner. The ending depicts the diverse ways that Welles is honored throughout the United States leading to the revelation of a secret about Welles that can only be described as beautifully inspirational. 


Verdi stated, "It's a story that needed be told and for the world to see. We are all very, very proud of how this project turned out and we can't wait to share it with the public."
