“...Vito Friscia, a now-retired New York Police Department detective, was just a block away from the World Trade Center when the north tower collapsed. He spent several months helping dig through the rubble, and was the subject of a documentary, “Vito After,” about health issues 9/11 workers have dealt with.

“Vito Friscia doesn’t like to talk about September 11th.
As requested by the library curator of the USS NEW YORK, VITO AFTER is now part of a select group of films in their 9/11 collection. It was an honor to donate DVDs, signed by Vito and me, to the battleship that was forged with steel from the World Trade Center in her bow.

VITO AFTER screening at the High Falls Film Festival
VITO AFTER screening at the Rochester High Falls Film Festival on May 1st was a real hit! As always, the audience loved it, and everyone was very excited to meet Vito and his wife Lisa (and maybe a little happy about meeting me, too). But Vito was the real "superstar" of the evening! A group from the Rochester Italian-American Law Enforcement Officers honored Vito with a tribute and special gifts, and sparked a very moving, full-house standing ovation lasting several minutes. After an engaging Q&A, the audience joined us for a reception down the block at Spot Coffee, thanks to John Cocca, local firefighter and film producer. Later, our screening's sponsor, Tony Mangione, graciously treated Vito, myself and our spouses to a delicious dinner at a popular Italian restaurant. Please see this link for lots more photos…You can scroll down on this RHFFF page to see several pages of photos by Julie Gelfand from that evening.
