Description: The film documents the lives of New Yorkers on Thursday, Sept. 11, 2003, the second anniversary of the terrorist attacks that shocked the world and became a turning point in the history of our nation. To create this dynamic portrait of a New York, 18 video crews documented 37 stories in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx on Sept. 11, 2003, with another crew filming a VIP dinner party at the landmark Surrogate's Courthouse across from City Hall. The resulting mosaic of personalities, insights and opinions features a wide variety of celebrated and ordinary New Yorkers. We're reminded how an unthinkable tragedy has been both an occasion for exploitation and introspection and how despite all odds, New York City remains a beacon of free society and a model of multicultural coexistence.
