               Albert Maysles,   world famous documentary filmmaker who filmed the Beatles in 1964 when they first came to the U.S., just celebrated his 85th birthday and is now showing his documentary with Paul McCartney titled, "The Love We Make".

       This documentary was conceived by Paul McCartney and filmed after the WTC attacks. On the morning of 9/11, Paul was on a jet on the tarmac of Kennedy Airport about to depart for London en route to his daughter Stella's birthday. All planes where grounded and from his  window Paul could see the burning WTC towers and their collapse.

       Paul was inspired to organize a benefit event with his fellow musician friends at Madison Square Garden with the support of Harvy Weinstein of Miramax Films. Paul commissioned Albert Maysles to make a film of the days surrounding the event. Filmed in black and white, Albert captures Paul walking the streets of NYC while conversing with New Yorkers and visitors. Paul is filmed promoting the event by being interviewed by Dan Rather on network television, chatting with Barbara Walters, and appearing on The Howard Stern Show .

             The musicians who performed were filmed both backstage and on stage at MSG. This group included Billy Joel, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards,Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend , Roger Daltrey, David Bowie,James Taylor, Jay-Z,  Bon Jovi and Elton John; as well as former President Bill Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jim Carrey, Harrison Ford and former Governor George Pataki. McCartney speaks of his handling tragedy in his life through music and humor which is exactly what he brought to this MSG event.

              This  film event was televised nationally on Showtime 9/11/11 after a press screening in Toronto 9/6.

              On Jan. 18 2012,the film was shown at the Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, L.I., to a sold-out crowd with Albert Maysles and Bradley Kaplan,  president of Maysles Films in attendance.

        Also in attendance was Nino Vendome the NYC real estate developer whose mother and father ran Nino's restaurant on Canal Street. After 9/11 Nino's restaurant offered free food to all Ground Zero workers and uniformed personnel 24 hours a day , 7 days a week for 7 months .  Nino is developing a screenplay about the people who came to Nino's after 9/11 and is in discussion  with Al Maysles about a documentary describing the experiences of those rescue workers who served  and volunteered at Ground Zero as well as those  who served food and drink at Nino's restaurant. Many stars from Broadway, TV  and Hollywood such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Danny Glover and Susan Sarandon generously gave their time to serve meals to the rescue workers.

        Also in attendance was Kristofer Ambrose, singer, composer and musician and personal friend of Albert. Kristofer composed a song called "Mother Companion" about "Little Edie" and "Big Edie" Bouvier Beale and inspired by the Maysles Brothers world famous and award winning "Grey Gardens" 1976 documentary which became an award- winning musical and HBO Movie with Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange. All three formats have won numerous awards.  " We the People" a featured track  on Kristofer's upcoming album titled "American Dream" speaks of the rescue workers at Ground Zero today . Kristofer spoke of this McCartney documentary possessing "real humor and real love growing from  tragedy" .

            Last but not least, Debbie Tuma, famous paparazzo and writer who has penned numerous articles on Albert Maysles and his films also attended and was inspired by the film. Debbie was struck by the comraderie  that Paul has both with people of New York and the  famous visiting musicians and dignitaries. "It was great to see the candid moments between Paul McCartney, all the great stars, and the people of New York."        

   "The Love We Make" now on DVD, is exhilirating, fascinating and profound. And as Albert Maysles says "all good documentaries can be viewed many times and new insights are always revealed."
