Storyline

In the winter of 2003, a catastrophic fire erupted in a Rhode Island concert club, ultimately claiming 100 lives. For this state of just over a million residents, the devastation was profound, leaving unanswered questions and deep scars in its wake. But out of the ashes of the tragedy arose an equally profound story of hope. One year after the fire, a community theatre in the small city of Woonsocket gathered together to perform a play written by the fire's youngest victim close to the end of his life - a play that many felt could only be described as prophetic. "41" tells the story of Nicky O'Neill, the young actor, writer and musician who left the world at age 18 but who left behind a message. "41" weaves together the story of a life cut short, the saga of a community in mourning, and a family finding its way out of the darkness. Written by Christian O'Neill, co-director of 41

documentary film-making at its best
10 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I was privileged to be able to attend the premiere of 41 and it was an experience I will not soon forget. I had known about the Station nightclub fire in Rhode Island that claimed the lives of 100 people. But I had not known Nick O'Neill, whose story is so compellingly told in this documentary. Nick's life had a tragic ending, but somehow 41 manages to be uplifting. Intercutting between Nick's story and his own journey as a filmmaker, Christian de Rezendes has produced a moving portrait both of the creative, rebellious, and charismatic Nick, and of his own skepticism as an objective observer to Nick's "afterlife" as a presence for his family and friends. This is a brilliant film, documentary film-making at its best. You won't think about life and death in the same way again.
