9/11/03: A DAY IN THE LIFE OF NEW YORK
Celebrating Normal Civilized Life
9/11/03 / FEATURE DOCUMENTARY
“Karz’s film is intended to encourage wide-ranging thought and promote constructive debate, useful ambitions in a post-9/11 world too often characterized by hard-line ideology and us-against-them thinking.”
—Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide
Eighteen film crews documented a day-in-the-life of New York City on September 11, 2003, the second anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, including a VIP dinner gathering at the Surrogates Courthouse hosted by NYU President John Sexton.
9/11/03 chronicles a city reconsidering itself in the face of growing external and internal threats and reaffirms the core humanistic values of normal, civilized life in a free society. It also presents New York City as a model of multicultural coexistence for achieving global stability, security, and prosperity.
