Man in Red Bandana


Man in Red Bandana

Man in Red Bandana is a story of sacrifice, selflessness and how the actions of one man can touch and inspire 1,000s. The film is about Welles Remy Crowther, a 9/11 hero. Welles was tragically killed in the lobby of the South Tower when it collapsed. His heroics only became known 8 months later due to an ordinary object … a red bandana.

The film retraces the unique manner in which his heroics became known and his last hour, his finest hour, saving others from the upper reaches of the South Tower. 

The film, then, depicts Welles’ folklore stature throughout the United States including songs written about him, artwork which he inspired and babies that have been named in his honor. Welles' inspirational legacy is followed by the revelation of a remarkable secret about Welles that provides one of the greatest endings of any documentary.

The film is narrated by Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow and contains an original song performed by Grammy-winner Lyle Lovett.
