Storyline

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 Lou Angeli

No better tribute
2 October 2005 | by chescafilmsSee all my reviews

On September 11, 2001 a neighbor knocked on my door and said 'Turn on your TV'. 'What possible explanation' could okay what I was seeing was my disturbed thought at the time.

Answering the Call reminds us of what is beyond in the human experience. 40,000 people volunteered. Thousands stood and acknowledged others for helping out. This extraordinary film shows the real meaning of citizenship and civility. It is a positive reminder of what we are really made of. This film should be seen by anyone who cares about anyone.

This movie shows how people of all backgrounds, religions, geographic locations, came together with one purpose: to help. It is an acknowledgement of those who generously gave of themselves because the needs of others were more important. Stand up for these people and see this movie.
