Mud season in Telluride ends with Memorial Weekend, May 27 – May 30, with the coming together of the tribe for the celebration that opens the summer festival season: Mountainfilm in Telluride. What began as a homespun gathering of outdoor enthusiasts has evolved into a colorful tapestry of lively talks, memorable exhibits, music and fantastic films. Among the films selected by festival director David Holbrooke for the 2011 line-up is "From the Ground Up," made by the team of Telluride locals George and Beth Gage at the request of Andrea Garbarini, executive producer, whose husband was one of the firefighters lost in the tragedy.

"From the Ground Up" is a 30-minute film encompassed perfectly by Mountainfilm’s motto “Celebrating Indomitable Spirit."  Spotlighting five widows of FDNY firefighters, it gives a snapshot of how their lives have evolved since the tragedy that changed the way we all live our lives now in the United States. Indirectly the movie touches on the question some people ask: “Why don’t they move on?”.

Proceeds from "From the Ground Up" all go to non-profits, all formed by 9/11 widows in memory of their loved ones. Go to Andrea's website: www.911filmproject.com. to find out more. AND, read the related post and listen to an interview with Andrea and Beth.
