Did you know? “Ferry Tales” A Documentary Filmed On The Staten Island Ferry Was Nominated For An Oscar in 2004?
We had a chance to chat with Corinna Sager, producer of Ferry Tales and Kamillah Hanks who was featured in the film and consequentially was the film’s publicist. Hanks is currently running for the north shore council seat against incumbent Debi Rose.
Recently, a video surfaced online containing the full hour long audio from comedian Louis CK’s 2011 show at the St. George Theater.
The show was a benefit for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, many of whom were given free tickets to the show. The material from that night would go on to make up the majority of his special ‘Oh My God.’
The Staten Island Ferry disaster took place on the morning of November 22nd, 1963. It is considered one of New York’s most horrific maritime disasters and it is said that nearly 400 people went down with the Cornelius G. Kolff ferry boat.
