Shot as a fly on the wall film, Mark LaGanga’s WTC 9/11 features real footage throughout the devastating attack and collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
Shot by photojournalist Mark LaGanga, it is an increasingly eerie scene filmed up close.
Wandering the streets near the Twin Towers, Mark seeks to document the full scope of destruction and understand the cataclysmic event by interviewing those who pass by.
Chaos ensues as firefighters, police and medical personal tries to restore order and help those in need. It is unknown to most (at this time) how two planes could’ve flown into the Twin Towers, yet every effort is pushed to safeguard and keep the damage to a minimum.
Throughout the film, we’ll witness how things only get worse. We’ll see exactly how it was when the towers collapsed and filled the New York streets with toxic clouds of dust. It is a catastrophe unparalleled in modern day New York, one that has left serious havoc in its wake.
To Mark however, documenting these events are paramount. Standing near Ground Zero, he captures the towers collapse along with debris and dust enveloping a fleeing ground personal.
Although Mark LaGanga’s WTC 9/11 was originally shot as a news broadcast, the whole film has now become an important bit of history.
