Christopher Nolan leeft mee met slachtoffers in Aurora

The Dark Knight Rises

Warner Bros.

Regisseur Christopher Nolan heeft gereageerd op het zinloos geweld tijdens de voorstelling van The Dark Knight Rises in Amerika. Ene James Holmes drong op donderdagnacht de bioscoopzaal van Aurora, een voorstad van de Amerikaanse stad Denver, binnen. Hij openende het vuur op de aanwezigen. 12 mensen lieten daarbij het leven. Verder zijn er tal van licht en zwaargewonden, waarvan enkele nog vechten voor hun leven.

Nolan drukt in naam van alle medewerkers van de film zijn medeleven uit:

“Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theater is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families.”
