On September 11, 2001, filmmaker James Hanlon and Jules and Gedeon Naudet were filming a documentary on a rookie New York City firefighter when they noticed a plane overhead. That plane would hit the World Trade Center. They rushed immediately to the scene. James Hanlon and the Naudets filmed throughout Sept. 11 and the days afterward from the firemen's perspective, as it became clear to them that this was the only known footage from inside the Twin Towers that day.Written by

This documentary contains what was believed to be the only footage of the first plane crashing into Tower One of the World Trade Center. However, an amateur video released to the press in September 2003 showed another angle of the crash. See more »

When you get out there, it's the real world. Don't be no hot-dog, show-off jerk. Pay attention to the senior men, and do what you're told.

The DVD version omits the scenes where Robert DeNiro and Steve Buscemi talk about the attacks. In the original broadcast version, just before the first plane hits, we hear James Hanlon say "It was 8:46 in the morning. That's when this stopped even resembling a normal day." On the DVD, the second sentence is replaced with a line from Battalion Chief Joseph Pfeifer, commenting on how you don't usually hear planes fly that low in Manhattan. See more »
Made by french brothers Jules and Giddeon Naudet, and narrated by Robert De Niro and Firefighter James Hanlon this is a compelling and heartbreaking tale of how New York's finest shone on it's darkest day. I first saw this when I was a young naive 12 year old, and at that age it still touched me. Knowing how serious 9/11 really was seeing this expanded the whole effect of 9/11. We were finding out who the heroes were, how there everyday lives were composed, and how they put their lives on the line in a situation where most people would just run and save their selves. These brave men put their lives on the line and watching this just increases my admiration for them. Watch if you can,this is the best documentary I have personally ever seen.
