On September 11, 2001, filmmaker James Hanlon and Jules and Gedeon Naudet were filming a documentary on a rookie New York City firefighter when they noticed a plane overhead. That plane would hit the World Trade Center. They rushed immediately to the scene. James Hanlon and the Naudets filmed throughout Sept. 11 and the days afterward from the firemen’s perspective, as it became clear to them that this was the only known footage from inside the Twin Towers that day.
Tomorrow I will reblog my personal story from September 11, 2001. Today, here is an amazing documentary. It is as if this team was in lower Manhattan on that fateful day to be the keepers of the story. You will see film of the first plane hit, see the interior of the World Trade Center, and ride with brave first responders.
Watch and remember. . . . .
