Sweet Prince Productions has wrapped up editing for the documentary short From Philadelphia to Fallujah a film that pays tribute to the courage honor and bravery of the graduates of the U.S. military academies at West Point and Annapolis. On December 1 2001 Creator Gil Bindelglas sat in his NYC apartment watching the Army-Navy football game. Occurring just weeks after the attacks of September 11 this storied rivalry was played with heightened national interest fueled by the knowledge that the players on the field would soon be leading the nation in the war against terrorism. It was a historic game. Ten years later this film commemorates the 2001 Army-Navy game and more specifically chronicles the journeys of three of the players from that game over the past decade - first as Cadets Midshipmen and football rivals then as officers leading the nation in war. Finally it answers the compelling question: Where are they now? Featuring the stories of JP Blecksmith Omari Thompson and Brian Stann this film recounts compelling journeys – some with tragic endings others with auspicious new beginnings – but always with incomparable nobility and honor. A portion of the proceeds from this film will be donated to the charities headed by or affiliated with these men including Hire Heroes USA and the JP Blecksmith Foundation. The trailer is available at http://www.armynavy2001.com. The film debuts online this month.
