Reviews for In Memoriam - New York City, 9/11/01 (2002)

Originally shown on HBO on May 26, 2002, In Memoriam is one of the most vital documents to emerge after the events of September 11, 2001. Compiled from over 100 sources, this collage of audio, video, and photography will provoke tears, anger, and grief all over again... so why watch it? The title states the purpose: as disturbing as some of these images are, they are also bursting with tenacious and inspiring humanity, bolstered by the wisdom of New York City's then-mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who recalls--along with his executive staff--the horrendous events of 9/11 as he entered the chaos of Ground Zero. With its closing montage of numerous memorial services, this exemplary 60-minute film, supplemented on the DVD by an interactive timeline of pivotal events, makes it virtually impossible to forget the 3,047 lives lost to terrorist brutality. Despite the astonishing scope of coverage provided, this is not a journalistic endeavor, but a potent visual reminder that 9/11 was a day of unity, transcending the horrors witnessed here. --Jeff Shannon

From the Back Cover
With the Honorable Rudolph W. Giuliani as guide, In Memoriam" New York City, 9/11/02 follows the mayor and his staff from their first realization of what had occurred, through despair and tears, to a newfound strength that would emerge in the spirit of a new America. The documentary presents a panoramic and unique historical record of that fateful day in New York City.
In Memoriam: New York City, 9/11/01 draws on unprecedented access to City Hall and the Mayor's staff, as well as visual material-much of it never before seen-from still and video cameras of more that 100 people in and around New York City, everyday citizens who were eyewitnesses to the tragic events of the day. Members of the Mayor's key staff are interviews in the film, including: Bernard Kerik, Police Commissioner: Thomas von Essen, Fire Commissioner: Joe Lhota, Operations Chief of City Government: Sunny Mindel, Communications Director: and Beth Petrone, the Mayor's executive assistant.
People from 115 different countries died at the World Trade Center, "It wasn't just an attack on America-it was an attack on much of the civilized world," comments Giuliani, "Nobody deserves to die; nobody in that building deserved to die. They were just doing their jobs. They were showing up and working. We should consider all of them heroes and patriots. They gave their lives pursuing the American dream."
