On September 11, 2001, filmmaker James Hanlon and Jules and Gedeon Naudet were filming a documentary on a rookie New York City firefighter when they noticed a plane overhead. That plane would hit the World Trade Center. They rushed immediately to the scene. James Hanlon and the Naudets filmed throughout Sept. 11 and the days afterward from the firemen's perspective, as it became clear to them that this was the only known footage from inside the Twin Towers that day.

The camera that Gideon is operating captures then mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani walking north on Broadway with his staff and news cameras. The footage was shot while riding down to the World Trade Center with off-duty firemen in a pickup truck. See more »

I'm glad that this documentary is now available on DVD on the one year anniversary. The most poignant shots, to me, were when people of all nationalities looked skyward, pointed at the smoldering towers, screamed, cried, panicked.... Every language and culture expressed a common grief as if the entire world was joined in arms for a moment. The documentary starts with rookie firefighters being filmed in training. One veteran joked "my first fire call was a burning trash can" as the rookies expressed excitement over being called to a burning car. Their naive, green faces would soon disappear. The french firefighter was merely shooting a routine training video. His camera would soon capture, up close, the nation's first major catastrophe of the 21st century. I just hope the shock of this event never wears off.
