The September 11 terrorist attacks seen by the eyes of New York citizens. All videos are recorded with common people's cameras from the moments that anticipate the impact of the first plane,till the collapse of the WTC 1 and 2. There couldn't be a more realistic way to show one of the worst and saddest moment of modern era of the United States history; the 102 minutes that changed an entire continent are completely narrated by the people who have directly lived that frightening day.Written by
All the movie is a real compilation of amateur footage about more of 100 people who were in the World Trade Center and around, with no narrators nor interviews. Most part of the images and conversations were unused for the public eye, no seen previously in TV News nor other documentaries. See more »
There have been many documentary about 9/11 since the attack. This one took the idea of the TV show "24" and showed the events from seconds after the 1st plane hit up to about 100 min thereafter in real time. The footage used were mostly from personal camcorders, and some from TV. The audios were either directly from the camcorders, from the media coverage or phone conversations sound bites at the moment. What was interesting about the documentary is that the point of view is not at the Twin Towers, but away from the Twin Towers. You see people in Time Square watched it on the outdoor large screen. You see students watching the event from Stevens Institute across the river in Hoboken, NJ. You see how people reacted in their apartments far away from the Twin Tower. In a way, the documentary is not just about 9/11, but an anthropological view of the people's reaction upon crisis. The editing job of putting all these material together was superb.
