Editorial Reviews

I Live at Ground Zero offers a different take on the 9/11 disaster - we see it through the eyes of a nine year old girl. Since birth Isabella has lived in Tribeca, New York City, in the shadow of the World Trade Center towers. Her public school, PS 234, was two blocks North of them and her local park, the New York City equivalent of a backyard, was across the street. The Twin Towers served as her north star, by which she learned to navigate her neighborhood and recognize the way home. Her community -- the protected, secure, and innocent world of her childhood -- was shattered on September 11th.

Over the following months, Schiller (her aunt) filmed Isabella's attempts to make sense of what she had witnessed that day. Growing up is usually a gentle, gradual process for middle class white girls in the Western world; however Isabella's experiences have catapulted her into a maturity beyond her years. The film focuses on her personal journey.

I just discovered this film, and think that in this particular political climate it is an important film for both young people and adults to watch. It is an honest, touching, and beautiful portrayal of the thoughts and feelings of a young person who witnessed the events of September 11th from her classroom window. The final scene is both moving and profound and hopeful. Thank you for making this film

It was alright. I was expecting more (maybe more drama). The young girl that was followed in this documentary seems alot older for her age. She is mature in her speaking and analyzes the situation alot more than I would expect from someone her age.
