PIX11’s digital documentary, "No One Is Safe From Son of Sam," will screen Thursday night at the 2017 Big Apple Film Festival. The 8-minute film screens with seven other short documentaries with New York themes.
PIX11 filmmakers will be in attendance. Screening begins at 9 p.m. at the SVA Theater on West 23rd Street in Chelsea. Tickets are $20.
The project was helmed by Creative Services producer, Heath Benfield and co-produced by WPIX director of digital and social strategy, Rolando Pujol. It is a gripping retelling of the fear and paranoia New Yorkers experienced at the time, featuring PIX11 veteran reporters Mary Murphy and Arnold Diaz as well as Pujol, in on-camera interviews conducted specifically for the piece.
The Big Apple Film Festival began Wednesday, Nov. 1 and closes Saturday, Nov. 4.
