9/11 - The Filmmakers' Commemorative Edition
Originally broadcast on CBS in March 2002, this one-of-a-kind, Emmy-award-winning documentary provides an extraordinary record of events as they unfolded in New York City. On the morning of 9/11, brothers Jules and Gedeon Naudet were filming a portrait of a NYC firefighter trainee stationed just seven blocks from the World Trade Center. They soon found themselves, and their cameras, thrust into the event as they followed the city’s firefighters on one of the darkest days in history. The resulting film documents the horrific events of that day along with the amazing courage and bravery of these American heroes. Not Rated; 112 minutes.
