Fundraiser for James Foley:
Screening of First to Fall and Q+A
Saturday, September 6, 8:15 PM
The Bronx Documentary Center family and RISC (Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues) are devastated by the loss of James Foley, who was killed this week in Syria by his captors. James had attended the RISC course at the BDC; he was a friend to many of us here.
On Sept. 6th at 8:15pm, the BDC will host a fundraiser to honor his memory. Rachel Beth Anderson and Tim Grucza, RISC colleagues of James, will show their film First to Fall. All proceeds will go to honoring James Foley’s memory as his family finds appropriate.
ABOUT THE FILM

Q&A with director Rachel Beth Anderson and co-director Tim Grucza. Moderated by Lydia Polgreen The New York Times Deputy International Editor.
Suggested donation $20, $10 for Bronx residents, children 18 and under free.
