9/11: 102 Minutes That Changed America


Amateur footage and audiotape recorded by people around New York, giving an insight into their experiences of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre in 2001. The duration of the tragedy, from the first plane hitting the north tower to the collapse of both buildings, was 102 minutes. During that time, many of the city's residents sought to preserve images of what was taking place. Joined together into a single, seamless historical record, the end result is an intensely personal perspective on events as they unfolded.
