Robin Gaby Fisher & Angelo J. Guglielmo Jr., The Woman Who Wasn’t There

Thursday April 5: 7:00PM 8:00PM

Tania Head's tale of survival from the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11 made her an instant celebrity. For years, Head freely shared her poignant story, and her words shook the lives of many people. But as it turns out, her heroic story of survival was a complete hoax. 

Head's story has since been made into both a book and a documentary. The book, The Woman Who Wasn't There: The True Story of an Incredible Deception, tells Head's story from its triumphant beginning to its sad conclusion. 

Join us to hear bestselling author Robin Gaby Fisher and filmmaker Angelo J. Guglielmo Jr. discuss the strange psyche behind this desperate cry for attention and the complicated plans and details that took place in order for Tania Head to convince the world of her story. A short trailer for the documentary will also debut. The film will screen in its entirety at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.
