7 days in September. CameraPlanet Pictures ; a film by Steven Rosenbaum ; directed by Steven Rosenbaum. [Troy, MI] : Anchor Bay Entertainment, .[Originally released as a documentary in 2002.]
It was a morning like any other, until the unthinkable made it a day we would never forget. On 9/11 and the following days the footage from 27 filmmakers recorded what they saw throughout the city. Together, they created an experience like no other, one that captures the horror, the anger and the strength of the human spirit. Using never-before-seen footage at "ground zero," this conveys the sights and sounds of the terrorist attacks in the most intimate way possible. It is an extraordinary portrait of a city in tears, a world in shock and one week that changed all our lives forever.
