Director: Steven Tringali | Year: 2017  | Runtime: 82 minutes  |  Language: English

Genre: Documentary

A nationally recognized K9 Unit Officer, Isaac Hoʻopiʻi is responsible for saving numous people from the Pentagon during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Countless articles were written about his heroism following 9/11. He was photographed by Richard Avedon for a spread in USA Today. He appeared on NBCʻs Today Show. And he ran the Olympic Torch on its way to Salt Lake City for the 2002 Winter Games.

Corridor Four is a feature-length documentary that illustrates Isaacʻs story in the aftermath of 9/11. After all the news cameras had turned off and all the lights had dimmed, Isaac was left only with the horrific images he had seen and the memory of those he was unable to save. His is a story not of a hero basking in the glory of his past deeds, but of a human being filled with regret that he couldnʻt change something completely out of his control.

Corridor Fourʻs Producer and Writer, Maria Bissell will hold a Q&A immediately following the film.  Her sister who introduced her to Isaac Hoʻopiʻi will also be joining her.

POINT OF NO RETURN takes you behind the headlines of the first solar-powered flight around the world-where two courageous pilots take turns battling nature, their own crew, and sometimes logic itself, to achieve the impossible. Not just to make history, but to inspire a revolution.
