The George Bush Presidential Library Foundation will host a special screening of 41ON41 at the Rudder Theatre Complex on the Texas A&M University campus on October 29, at 6:00pm.
Mary Kate Cary (Executive Producer of 41ON41) and Pierce Bush (grandson of President Bush) will participate in a panel discussion after the screening. The film screening and panel discussion will both take place in Rudder Auditorium.
41ON41, a 90-minute documentary funded by the George Bush Foundation, explores the policy decisions, bipartisanship, good humor and character that shaped President Bush’s life, and marked his tenure as leader of the free world. Cary, a former White House speechwriter for President Bush, and Co-Executive Producer Rick Kaplan, formerly of ABC News and CNN, joined forces with the award-winning production team of Nancy Stern Winters and Lisa Lax at Lookalike Productions to produce the film 41ON41.
“The goal of this film is for the world to see President Bush through the stories of his life – one of the most significant in our modern history,” says Frederick D. McClure, Chief Executive Officer of the George Bush Foundation and former Assistant for Legislative Affairs to President George Bush. “It is more than a recounting of history – it is an engaging and uplifting profile of one of our greatest citizens that no American will want to miss.”
The captivating narrative is a seamless weave of behind-the-scenes stories told by 41 extraordinary people – some funny, some poignant, all riveting. Led by First Lady Barbara Bush, the 41 storytellers include an array of personalities from former presidents and world leaders to comedians, Hall of Famers and skydivers to Secret Service agents, White House butlers, family members, fishing buddies and more – several of whom have never spoken on camera until now. The documentary also includes never before-seen footage from the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M University in College Station, and the Bush family’s private video and photo collection.
