Stony Brook sets lineup

9/11 documentary to debut

Documentary “9/11: An American Requiem” will make its world preem at the Stony Brook Film Festival in July.

“Requiem” looks at the health issues faced by the first responders to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, with a focus on the Stony Brook Medical Center’s World Trade Center Medical Monitoring and Treatment Program.

The 16th annual fest in Stony Brook, N.Y., opens with the U.S. preem of Dutch film “Sonny Boy,” Maria Peters’ romance about a mother of four and a younger man from Suriname. Closing-night offering is Yasemin Samdereli’s “Almanya,” a German comedy about a family of Turkish immigrants in Germany.

Also among the 34 films screening in the fest are the Isabella Rossellini-William Hurt starrer “Late Bloomer,” making its U.S. bow, and the David Schwimmer-helmed drama “Trust,” starring Clive Owen and Catherine Keener. Tribeca alum “Roadie” is also on the sked.

This year’s edition of the festival runs July 21-30.
