One of the most abiding and shattering images to emerge from September 11, 2001, was press photographer Richard Drew’s picture of a man falling from the North Tower of the World Trade Centre. He was one of many workers who took their fate into their own hands on that awful day, and jumped to their deaths.
At the time it was considered simply too distressing by many newspapers who decided not to use it. But documentary maker Henry Singer, in this powerfully sad Bafta nominated film from 2006, decides to try to uncover the man’s identity.
The issue of “jumpers” remains a difficult one for some Americans and family members who lost loved ones.
Documentary about the people who jumped from the World Trade Centre during the September 11 terrorist attacks, and one man in particular whose plight was one of the defining images of the tragedy. Contributors include the photographer who captured the shot, which was published in newspapers before being banned, and the journalist who claimed to have identified the falling man.
