In Our Son's Name
Phyllis and Orlando Rodríguez's lives shatter when their son, Greg dies with thousands of others in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Instead of seeking revenge, the grieving parents begin a journey of reconciliation that transforms their lives. The film follows their odyssey, which thrusts them reluctantly into the public eye as they speak out against war in Iraq and Afghanistan, oppose the death penalty for 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui, and befriend his mother.
Winner 2016 Social Justice Film Festival Bronze Jury Award, Feature Documentary
“I watched this powerful and healing documentary in a lecture theater filled with utterly transfixed undergraduates – literally the 9/11 generation – and you could have heard a pin drop in the room. None of us could help but be moved, even transformed, by Phyllis and Orlando’s remarkable courage and dignity.”
-Shadd Maruna, Dean, Rutgers University School of Criminal Justice

-Matthew T. Lee, University of Akron American Sociological Association Footnotes
"You cannot help but be impacted by the humility and grace that Phyllis and Orlando show in the face of their son's murder, nor to ask youself, 'Would I be able to do the same?'"
- Shannon Moroney, restorative justice advocate and author
