No Disney, Just reality
Putting the politics aside, this wonderful humanitarian movie from director Steve Rodenbaum collects together work from over 30 New York film-makers who shot footage in the aftermath of 911.
This is certainly more worthy viewing than the mix of fiction and propaganda we got from Disney and ABC. Given the controversy, I was surprised that BBC2 had the audacity to broadcast it here in Britain over the weekend.
Yesterday's Amy Goodman broadcast (see link left) also made a refreshing change. Her 911 coverage featured an in-studio discussion between the creators of the "Loose Change" conspiracy theories movie and the editors of "Popular Mechanics". A lively debate, interspersed with footage from the film. It should be in the archives at her link.
