EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A man who spent two years making a documentary about the 1977 plane crash that killed all members of the University of Evansville men’s basketball team is looking to get the film widely distributed.

Joe Atkinson tells the Evansville Courier & Press (https://bit.ly/1mvy9H2 ) he wants the film “From the Ashes” to get as wide an audience as possible, whether it ends up on TV or a theatrical run. The documentary had been submitted to six film festivals

Atkinson conducted interviews and gathered documents, photographs and news coverage. He reached out to all surviving family members of the 29 people killed. While some chose not to reflect on the pain, Atkinson was pleased with the overall response. He says many people he talked with wanted their sons’ stories told.
