September 11th, 2001: The Day That Changed The World: World Trade Center: 9/11/2001
Shocked by the events of September 11, 2001, artists – like everyone – struggled to make sense of the unfathomable destruction and loss of innocent life witnessed that day. Fifteen years after the terrorist attacks, we return to that moment when the unimaginable became real through works by 13 New York City artists deeply affected by 9/11.

Work at the World Trade Center site, the gaping hole in New York City's downtown that has come to be known as Ground Zero, has been going on for 233 days.

Ever since the attacks on America in September 2001, conspiracy theories – some credible, others less so – have persisted about what actually took place. Fifteen years after 9/11, this documentary takes a look at some of the theories surrounding the attacks and investigates whether information is still being held back. The film presents a range of views from families who say they haven’t been told the full story by the US administration to insiders who say how they believe the attacks could have been prevented..
