Times Square Suicide Bomber Film Removed by Sundance

May 9, 2010

(ChattahBox)—These are scary times, we now live in, under the constant threat of a terrorist attack. With the recent failed Times Square car-bombing, nerves are raw and sensitivities heightened. And the Sundance Channel, recognizing that timing is everything, has decided to pull its remaining showings of a movie portraying the chilling preparations of a female suicide bomber planning to attack Times Square.

The 2006 Independent film, “Day Night Day Night,” won an award at the Cannes film festival. And Sundance was showing the movie, about the 19-year-old female terrorist of unknown origin and political affiliation, as part of a series of award-winning films.

The New York Times’ review of “Day Night Day Night,” described the portrayal of a young terrorist, as “gripping.” “For most of its 94 minutes, this gripping minimalist portrait of an unidentified 19-year-old suicide bomber planning to blow up Times Square focuses on Ms. Williams’s face. Determination, rage, uncertainty, bravado, modesty and panic are among the feelings that flicker over her slightly feral features.”

Under the circumstances, Sundance decided to replace “Day Night Day Night,” for the remainder of the month. Sundance issued a statement, saying “given the events of the past week, the channel “has opted to suspend additional airings.”
