Harrowing... Exceptional... a rare, non-sensational document." -Ed

Documents "ground zero" in the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, September 11, 2001 with raw and powerful honesty. Intentionally devoid of any commentary or music, the images and sounds speak for themselves. The smoldering monochromatic site. The desolate and solitary streets. The ashen outskirts of New York's once bustling financial center. A moonscape of haunting, Dresdenesque remains. Shot independently over a 24-hour period, the film not only bears witness to the terrible attack, but also offers an intimate portrait of the incredible humanity that sprung from it. This presentation contains two versions of WTC: The First 24 Hours, the expanded documentary and, following it, the original version, which began as a raw reflection of "ground zero" in the wake of the World Trade Center collapse.
