Witness the global tragedy of 9/11 in a deeply personal and utterly unique way: through the images and sounds captured by New Yorkers as the terror attack unfolded.
The date is forever reserved for reflection and remembrance. Nothing made sense that morning, and it is incredible to look back now and realize how quickly the world-changing events occurred: a mere 102 minutes passed from first impact to the collapse of
the second tower.
Piecing together video and audio from over a hundred sources – amateur and professional photographers, voicemails, emergency dispatch recordings, network out-takes and much more – 102 Minutes That Changed America presents the attack as it was experienced.
Relive that infamous morning through the raw sights and sounds of confusion, uncertainty and fear as the terror unfolded, and remember the bravery and valour of ordinary citizens and emergency crews. Intensely personal, universally affecting, 102 Minutes That Changed America presents an authentic and reverential chronicle of the unforgettable events of 9/11.
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.
