In Person: Filmmaker Charlie Minn (and 1 or 2 victims)
The film screens on the 20 year anniversary of the brutal crime, one that many people will never forget, especially on Long Island. The website is www.lirrmassacre.com
This will certainly be an emotional day for many.
Twenty-five people were shot in less than two minutes that horrible day, killing six.
On December 7, 1993 the worst crime in New York history (prior to the 9-11 attacks) took place on the LIRR. A crazed gunman shot twenty-five people in less than two minutes, killing six. Director Charlie Minn ("A Nightmare in Las Cruces") interviews victims, witnesses, law enforcement and congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy who lost her husband and nearly her son in the brutal attack.
Charlie Minn is a filmmaker who lives in Manhattan. He grew up in Manhasset Hills and attended went to Herricks HS. The massacre happened ten minutes from where he grew up. He lost a classmate that day.
He makes "victim-driven" documentaries. He has sold films to Lions Gate and Investigation Discovery while once working on the show "Americas Most Wanted." From his drug war trilogy in Mexico to many other true-crime films, Charlie's aim is to give victims a much needed voice.
