A chronological record of the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001, assembled from video & audio footage recorded by more than 100 eyewitnesses.
New York City, September 11, 2001. The morning everything changed. 102 minutes passed between the first plane's impact into One World Trade Center, the second plane's attack on Two World Trade Center, and the eventual collapse of both buildings. In that time, people around New York experienced a range of emotions. Despite the horror and the incomprehensibility of what was happening, many knew, somehow, that they had a unique responsibility to record what they saw. They reached for their cameras. This unprecedented documentary special joins hundreds of pieces of their footage and audiotape into a single, seamless historical record. It is an intensely personal perspective of the tragedy, communicating for the first time that morning's events, as they were experienced by people around New York. It is an evocative, authentic and reverential memorial to one of the most cataclysmic events in world history. The film is followed by I-Witness to 9/11, an 18-minute documentary short featuring nine of the stories behind these unforgettable images and sounds. - Container.

This documentary was very overwhelming to watch. I had
to fight back tears. I remember
watching both towers fall to
the ground on tv years ago.
I can't even imagine how all those people felt that day in
New York City. It was a real
terrifying day for America.

Great documentary about that particular day on a sunny Tuesday morning that quickly turned to world wide horror. The video's are taken from many differnt standpoints from people who were there that day. And we follow their journey from surprise, to excuse making (it was an accident!) to the final realization of what really was happening. Heck, even as people were jumping from the burning towers, the people who were taking video refused to believe they were people falling, and thought they were furniture. Hard documentary to watch, but it should be seen.
