"The Day the Towers Fell" is a documentary consisting of interviews with photographers about 9/11, and their accompanying photos of the tragedy. These aren't people who saw a photo op and took it; these are human beings who bore witness to a disaster; the photos are their testimony.

The photographers speak very movingly about the experience; the photos are stark, horrifying, and sad depictions of victims, the haunted faces of the firefighters, the frightened people running from the scene, the nuclear winter-type atmosphere, the remains of the edifices, and the firemen putting the American flag on top of rubble. Very striking.

No one could forget 9/11 if they wanted to, but looking at a documentary like this reminds us not only of what happened, but the heroes - in the buildings, on the planes, and on the ground whose lives ended or changed, as all of our lives did. This incident clearly changed the lives of the men and women who chronicled it with their photos.
