A psychological suspense thriller about The World Trade Center Survivors' Network and their former President, Tania Head. After meeting Director Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr., Head commissioned a documentary based on her work with the Survivors' Network. Filming began and the world's most famous 9/11 survivor told her story with spellbinding intensity. There was only one problem: Tania Head was never in the Twin Towers and her epic story of grief was a complete fabrication. Written by
Angelo J. Guglielmo, Jr.
Linda Gormley is not a survivor of the attacks on the World Trade Center. She was not in either tower when the planes hit. However, she did witness the event from the street, a fact that she never hid from the Survivor's group or Tanya Head. There are instances in this movie, and even more in the book, where Tanya Head brings up this fact to Linda in a malicious way. See more »
The hijackers were not the only perpetrators of evil on 9/11
"The Woman Who Wasn't There" is a documentary about frustratingly evil woman. 'Tania Head' (she actually has many aliases--this is one of them) gained a lot of notoriety as a leader in the 9/11 survivor community. Often she was in the limelight--acting as a spokesperson for all the survivors of this terrorist attack. The reasons she rose to such notoriety are how compelling and chilling her story is as well as her deliberately insinuating herself into leadership positions in support organizations. The problem is that it turns out that she NEVER was at 9/11 during the attack...heck, it even appears that she wasn't even living in the US at the time!
To tell the story, the film mostly lets Tania and her friends and associates tell their stories. There isn't commentary nor is there really any attempt to explain why she perpetrated this vicious fraud. Personally, I like this about the film as too often people try to explain away bad behaviors--and there really is no need to try to understand or explain. What she did was awful...period. And the film does a good job of projecting this and showing the harm she did to the real victims.
