“I am concerned that the people who stand ready to assist others in the time of need are not fully recognized for that effort. I wanted to tell their story of preparedness, training and waiting for the alarm bell to ring — then Haiti unleashed its misery on the impoverished Caribbean peoples and our story took on a different significance. We and the audience will see training made real, commitments made genuine and the use of sophisticated equipment — provided by governments and NGOs that are supported by the tax dollars of those in the audience — to lessen the crisis. From a social perspective, Rescue may turn out to be my most important IMAX-format film yet.”
