Man In Red Bandana is a documentary film about the inspirational story of an American hero…Welles Remy Crowther. Welles worked on the 104th floor of the South Tower and saved many people on September 11th. Tragically, he died that day but his heroics became known eight months later as a result of an ordinary item…a red bandana. The film re-traces Welles’ courageous actions that fateful day, and examines the many people (family, friends and strangers) who have been inspired by Welles’ actions and the unique ways in which they have honored him.
Man In Red Bandana is the debut effort of writer and director Matthew Weiss. He first learned of Welles’ remarkable story over lunch with Jefferson Crowther, Welles’ father. Matthew was amazed and inspired. He quickly decided that everyone should hear this story and obtained the Crowther’s permission and blessing to make Man In Red Bandana. Chad A. Verdi and Joshua Sason are signed on as producers. Gwyneth Paltrow narrates, with Michelle Verdi executive producing and Lyle Lovett performing an original song.
