Editorial Reviews

New York City, September 11, 2001. The morning everything changed.

102 minutes passed between the first plane s impact into One World Trade Center, the second plane s attack on Two World Trade Center, and the eventual collapse of both buildings. In that time, people around New York experienced a range of emotions. Despite the horror and the incomprehensibility of what was happening, many knew, somehow, that they had a unique responsibility to record what they saw.

They reached for their cameras.

This unprecedented documentary special joins hundreds of pieces of their footage and audiotape into a single, seamless historical record. It is an intensely personal perspective of the tragedy, communicating for the first time that morning s events, as they were experienced by people around New York. It is an evocative, authentic and reverential memorial to one of the most cataclysmic events in world history.

The film is followed by I-Witness to 9/11, an 18-minute documentary short featuring nine of the stories behind these unforgettable images and sounds.

The History Channel aired this program several times in the wake of the anniversary of 9-11. I was able to catch two viewings of this show.

I live in San Diego, Ca. and like most people, I witnessed 9-11 through the lens of the collective (and individual) camera eyes. To say this is the "best" 9-11 documentary is, perhaps, inappropriate to say, but this particular program stands high above any of previous 9-11 shows I have seen as far as capturing what must have been a horrific event to witness first hand.
What makes this program stand out is it's lack of a produced narrative. No Dan Rather telling me what I already know. No trite musings that have littered most of these types of programs. Instead the producers have allowed the viewer to see and hear the events as they happened. It is, for the most part, straight footage with no production elements added.If any narration IS heard it is from any given individual who happenes to be speaking within the video footage itself. As a viewer we are drawn into this presentation as we watch others watching the horror, and then watch it ourselves. There is a minimal amount of ambient soundtrack included but it is highly underscored and very consistant with much of the raw footage that fills this doucumentary.
As for the footage included, it is safe to say it has to be some of the most compelling news-type footage I have ever seen, in regards to anything. Much of this footage was done by amateurs but it does not detract form the experience one bit.
One particularly haunting shot that sticks out to me is a shot taken by an individual somewhere near the base of the WTC towers after both have been hit. THe camera is busy collecting visuals of a courtyard barren of any people...just papers and ashes drifting lazely with ominous whimzey.

The aftermath of the attacks on the Twin Towers was likely the most videotaped event in human history. New Yorkers, New Jerseyites, other locals, and tourists started filming shortly after the first tower was hit and continued throughout the day, sometimes at their own peril. "102 Minutes That Changed America" documents what they saw and what they filmed. The film relies very little on video from reporters or the major networks, although at times you can hear the television or radio playing in the background as people film. Instead, the filmmakers of this documentary from the History Channel have woven together skillfully dozens of amateur videos that more accurately capture how people reacted on this historic day. The average person videotaping from her living room in a high rise apartment just blocks away the Twin Towers, and the average tourist recording reactions of people in Time Square. In addition, the filmmakers wisely opted to forgo including narration, and rely on only minimal title cards to inform the audience where the video was being filmed, the time, and so forth.

Some of these amateur videographers provide running commentary for us, expressing their disbelief at what is unfolding. Some of them talk to loved ones who are nearby or record people around them, including strangers. Still others record in abject silence. The videos at the beginning of the documentary reflect the initial confusion as people saw the first tower ablaze. People speculate that it was just a small plane that got lost. Eventually, the videographers and people in the streets realize that it was a terrorist act. We hear the screams and panic as the second plane hits - these moments are among the most gut-wrenching and dramatic.

Format: DVD
This is by far the best documentary of September 11th that I have ever seen. It does not use news footage, which really doesn't show how the event affected New York City. It shows the footage of the people who were there and in real time. It shows the mood of the city at the time, and how confusion was widespread among people who had no clue as to what was happening.
This documentary also shows how rumors were rampant in the city at the time and the disinformation spread from person to person (such as the two women who said that someone else told them that the second plane was a British Airways). This account of 911 is shocking, horrifying, disturbing, and heart wrenching. It overall gives you more information about 911 than you get from the news, and it shows you only footage and sound from the people in New York City on the streets who just happened to have their cameras at the time. This is a very compelling and dark account of one of the worst days in American History. I would fully 100% recommend this to anyone interested in 911. It is great, informative, and will keep you glued to your t.v. screen.

Format: DVD
I've seen quite a few different 9/11 videos and this disc had a lot of content that I had never seen before. It is presented as constant stream of video from different sources in chronological order, interrupted only by a black screen with white text that shows the time the segment was filmed.

Also included in a 15-minute documentary with interviews from some of the people who filmed the video in the main piece. It helps provide some context and understand how terrible event impacted so many ordinary people.

The most awe-inspiring moment is the video filmed by a female college student with her roommate. They are watching people leap to their death from the first tower, and then the second plane hits. The sound of their screaming when the building explodes is something that will be with me for a long time.
