Yesterday at the Film Society: Remembering 9/11

Posted by Eugene Hernandez on 9.11.2011

At the Walter Reade Theater yesterday, filmmaker Jules Naudet (center) talked about his 2002 movie, 9/11 a first-person account of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Jules Naudet and his brother Gedeon Naudet, filming all summer at a firehouse near the World Trade Center, turned their camera towards the sky as a hijacked airplane flew overhead en route to slamming into World Trade Center 1 on the morning of 9/11.

The film, directed by Jules Naudet, Gedeon Naudet and James Hanlon, offers an up close and personal account of the events in New York City, while also taking an inside look at the lives of New York City firefighters. 

Jules Naudet is pictured at the Film Society of Lincoln Center with Cardozo Law Professor Christian Delage and FSLC Associate Program Director, Scott Foundas.

A second event Remembering September 11 will take place tonight at the Walter Reade Theater. The screening of 25th Hour will include a post-screening Q & A with filmmaker Spike Lee, actors Ed Norton and Phillip Seymour Hoffman and producer Jon Kilik.
