Huntington Village, NY - June 22, 2018 - Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci, Councilman Ed Smyth and Town Historian Robert Hughes welcomed Brookhaven Town Supervisor Edward P. Romaine; "One Life to Give" executive producer, Leah Dunaief; co-producer and writer, Michael Tessler; sponsor, John C Tsunis, CEO of Gold Coast Bank; and local residents at the Nathan Hale Memorial to announce the release of the film, a telling of the American Revolution, through highlighting the life and death of “America’s First Spy,” Nathan Hale.
“Although Hale was captured and executed, his legacy did not end there – in fact, it had only just begun,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci. “His sacrifice inspired thousands of Americans to fight for our country’s independence in different ways, including the creation of an espionage operation behind British lines on Long Island. Nathan Hale will certainly be remembered for his patriotism, martyrdom, and his impact on a key area of the Revolutionary War.”
“I hope this film continues to foster an interest in Colonial American history and Nathan Hale specifically. The North Shore of Long Island has a very rich history of great patriots,” said Councilman Ed Smyth.
“Long Island played a major role in the birth of our nation and brave men like Nathan Hale helped turn the tide in Revolutionary War,” said Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine. “I am proud to represent to Town of Brookhaven, home of the legendary Culper Spy Ring, as we honor those who risked their lives in the name of freedom and independence.”
The film debuts this Sunday, June 24, 7PM at Stony Brook University’s Staller Center for the Arts, 100 Nicolls Road, Stony Brook and admission is free. It was directed by Benji Dunaief, stars Long Islanders and it was shot on Long Island.
Nathan Hale, whom Huntington’s “Halesite” hamlet was named after, was famously captured as a spy by British forces and brought to New York City where he was hanged. His famous last words: “My only regret is that I have but one life to lose for my country,” have been etched in history and remain a point of extreme patriotism for many Long Islanders and Americans.
