Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
The 2002 Academy Award-winner for Best Documentary Short Subject, Twin Towers looks at the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, through the eyes of several Harlem police officers who answered the call to duty on that fateful day. Filmmakers Bill Guttentag and Robert David Port followed the officers on the morning of the attacks as they arrived at The World Trade Center to find it had been struck by two hijacked airliners. The harrowing footage is presented along with retrospective interviews.
