Candy Factory Films Releases Poignant 9/11 Film September Morning Nationwide 
 September Morning will make its bow in Theatres and on VOD/DVD/Digital platforms nationwide on September 8th, 2017 following its community outreach campaign hitting schools across the country
September Morning, the feature length directorial debut of Ryan Frost (Mobster’s Moll, Reunion) will be available nationwide from Candy Factory Films.  The film, an exploration of coming to terms with innocence lost of a nation in the wake of 9/11, has toured the country in association with a number of the nation’s leading 9/11 organizations – the FealGood Foundation and the Twin Towers Orphan Fund among others, sparking dialogues with students and educators across the country of what it was like to live through one of America's most unforgettable days.  The movie will open in theatres in Los Angeles, New York, D.C., Chicago, Portland, Philadelphia and Richmond, VA, among others, as well as across all VOD/Digital and DVD platforms as a day and date release timed to the sixteenth anniversary of 9/11. It will also be utilized as part of this falls orientation at esteemed universities around the country beginning with Villanova, USC and the University of Miami, among others.
“I emerged from history class on a sunny Tuesday in September to learn our nation was under attack. Eighteen-years-old, frightened, and away from home for the first time, I looked to a group of freshmen peers for answers, support, and human connection. I think that human connection is still vital to us all these years later and I’m grateful to share that and the film with such a vast audience,” states director Ryan Frost.
September Morning stars Patrick Cage II (Jane the Virgin, Rebel), Katherine C. Hughes (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Kingdom), Troy Doherty (Hachi: A Dog’s Tail, Hickey), Michael Grant (The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Where Hope Grows), Taylor Rose (The Good Wife, The Family Fang), Michael Liu (Keeping up with the Joneses, Conviction), and Max Gail (42, Barney Miller). In the confusing hours following the tragic events of 9/11, five college freshmen confront the promises of youth that have been brutally severed by a national tragedy. The emotional and intellectual aftermath, for these five as well as our nation, raises more questions than it answers.  Written & Directed by Ryan Frost, and produced by Orestes Arcuni, (Mad Men, Scorpion), Ryan Frost, William S. Goldstein (The Reign, Aviator), Stephen Gibler (Sports Jam, Bread and Butter), and executive producer Richard P. Forman (Undercover Boss). The original music for the film composed by Daniel Wehr (Sinister, Spider-Man 3).
“Like many Americans, I’m intimately tied to the tragic events of 9/11, and the emotions of that day can still be summoned in an instant.  And though September Morning chooses to deal with the 9/11 story in a much different way than most post-9/11 dramas, it’s every bit as powerful and accessible, bringing to mind moving films like Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. We’re excited to be able to share this unique drama with audiences everywhere,” states Jason Ward, President of Candy Factory Films.
September 11th was a day we'll never forget, but what will we remember? In the first dark hours following the tragic events that would become known as 9/11, five college freshmen huddle together within the safety of a dorm. Unsure of their families’ fates and far away from everything they’ve ever known, they spend the night sharing stories, telling jokes, and asking “What’s it going to be like tomorrow?” as they wait for the sun to rise in answer to their question.  Out of national tragedy, lifelong bonds forge; bonds that will anchor them to who they are as they grow up.
