Answering the Call depicts the surreal sites and sounds of the now sacred ground that was once the World Trade Center complex - a site now known throughout the world as Ground Zero. Ground Zero's volunteers - volunteer firefighters, church and relief organization volunteers, private citizens - describe their experiences responding to the call for help, how self-made leaders that were born and the inspiring teamwork of thousands of strangers who became brothers and sisters. Instead of despair, the film encourages viewers to pay tribute to the victims and rescuers and volunteers of Ground Zero by engaging in volunteer service. Written by
A great documentary with a great social message. Man's humanity toward man. Perhaps it will be tough for Answering The Call to compete with Morgan Freeman and his Penguin pals, but if I were voting for best documentary of the year, it would be the one produced by Angeli and Dubin.
A side note: It is interesting how two of the posted "reviewers" have made their way from site to site posting the same review of Answering The Call. In their desperate attempt to take shots at Scientology they have knowingly discredited the entire rescue operation and the many good people who responded to New York on 9/11 -- including the Scientologists. I volunteered as a firefighter and EMT, along with 40,000 of friends and colleagues at Ground Zero, including the 800 volunteer ministers.
If anyone's been brainwashed, it's these two cats, who believe that man is inherently bad. Go see the movie boys, because you sure as heck didn't see the film that was shown in theaters on 9/11.
