Director Syed Hasan has partnered with The Landmark River Oaks Theater to premiere his debut film, 100 Boats on Thursday, January 9th. Hasan captured the integrity of the Houston community during its time of crisis in 2017, as Hurricane Harvey devastated the city. As everyday heroes came to the rescue of those in despair, the city became “Houston Strong.”
100 Boats tells the remarkable story of a group of volunteers who set up an emergency relief center to rescue stranded residents from their flooded homes during 2017’s Hurricane Harvey. Through personal accounts, filmmaker Syed Hasan shows the devastation caused by this monster storm and highlights the heroes who risked their lives to save their city. 100 Boats also follows the rebuilding of Houston one year later and highlights a man in Rosharon, Texas who, with a team of volunteers, helped rebuild twenty-two homes in his own community.
100 Boats is a story of the resilience of the human spirit, the power of unity, and the courage it takes to help others without expecting anything in return. This film was developed to pay homage to the incredible generosity of the individuals from near and far whose contributions made the difference between life and death. The local honorees, chosen by Hasan for their heroism and unparalleled spirit, will be present and receive special recognition during the event.
Join us at River Oaks Theatre on January 9th at 7 p.m. to catch the premiere of 100 Boats. The film is expected to run for 40 minutes. Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased at www.100boatsfilm.com.
