In Our Son's Name is a remarkable tale of restorative justice and a moving portrait of resilience, courage, and the healing power of reconciliation. Insightful interviews, verité footage, and striking archival images create a subtle, profound story told with disarming candor – a response to violence that challenges conventional concepts of justice and healing.
The protagonists in this documentary, Phylllis and Orlando Rodriguez, whose son Greg perished in the attacks of 9/11, are friends of former Maryknoll Lay Missioners, Larry Rich and Susan Weissert. Larry, who oversaw the Maryknoll Society's Media Department for many years and is now a media consultant-producer-writer, on several occasions also worked with the producer, Gayla Jamison.
