MEMORY BOX: ECHOES OF 9/11

In the months following the terrorist attacks that struck New York, Washington D.C. and Shanskville on September 11, 2001, artist Ruth Sergel set up a plywood video booth and invited passersby to stop and recount what they had witnessed and how they felt.

In this landmark feature documentary, filmmakers David Belton and Bjørn Johnson intersperse Sergel's testimonies with archival news footage and invite some of the original participants to return to the booth again. The result is a powerful narrative of those massive, cataclysmic events and a remarkable portrait of trauma and resilience.
