Review

“That’s a very hard thing to watch,” says a news presenter as the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center unfold live in front of her. The same could be said of this documentary, a skilfully assembled but harrowing montage of first-hand stories from New Yorkers who filmed what they lived through that day. 
We join a family with a small baby who live six blocks from the World Trade Center, as they try to decide whether to flee or stay put. Students gather on a rooftop debating whether the first collision was an accident. An architect tells the camera confidently that the buildings won’t collapse. When they do, the clouds of debris roaring down the streets look apocalyptic.
