Screening: 9/11, directed by Jules and Gédéon Naudet

Tuesday 7 September 2021 from 19:00 to 22:00

The documentary "9/11" is presented by the French filmmakers and brothers Jules and Gédéon Naudet and introduced by Aurélie Bonal, Deputy Chief of Mission at the French Embassy in the United States.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the directors.

On September 11, 2001, Jules and Gédéon Naudet are making a documentary about a New York firefighter. Instead, they found themselves documenting the attacks in Lower Manhattan. Right after the first plane crashed, Jules Naudet followed FDNY rescue crews into the burning North Tower of the World Trade Center. His brother Gédéon Naudet filmed back at the firehouse before making his way to Ground Zero. The video they captured would later become a documentary: "9/11".
