Rescue film focuses on heroic efforts in midst of disaster

South Jersey’s The Central Record profiles Giant Screen film Rescue 3D. The film is currently playing in IMAX, Giant Screen and other specialty theaters in 3D and 2D.

The film documentary “Rescue” is not so much about global disasters, including the earthquake in Haiti, but about the rescuers and volunteers — their skills and determination. Businessman and emergency responder Stephen Heicklen of Medford Lakes is one of them.

As Canadian director Stephen Low describes his film, it is “an epic journey of hope in the world of disaster and emergency response captured in 3-D with unprecedented scale and impact for the giant screen.” The filming required tremendous skill in landing aircraft and staying out of the way of people who were helping the Haitians recover survivors and clean up debris.

“Rescue” is being shown in 10 states and three countries in IMAX theaters and will soon be shown in New Jersey and the Philadelphia area. It is presented by The Boeing Company and Canadian Forces Maritime Command and produced by the Stephen Low Company.

Ten cents from every “Rescue” ticket sold will support American Red Cross Disaster Relief.
