A new documentary about the Long Island Rail Road massacre comes out Friday.

The incident took place nearly 20 years ago when Colin Ferguson opened fire on a train in Garden City, N.Y.

The film's director, Charlie Minn, said that he wanted to make a film that focuses on the victims instead of the gunman.

"You can never quite tell how a victim is going to take a tragedy," Minn said. "Some take it really, really bad. Some totally don't talk to anybody. You have Carolyn McCarthy, who's been serving in Congress for 17 years, so she's out in the public. It really depends, and how they take that tragedy, we all have to accept and respect."

You can see the movie starting Friday in Manhattan, as well as in Merrick on Long Island.
