9.11 was produced by the New York City Independent Media Center. 9.11 listens to the voices of NYC in mourning, a city coming to terms with the aftermath of events on September 11 and the potential violence of a protracted war. New York City residents respond to the tragedy with spontaneous memorials, public sites of grief and discourse where the transformation of mourning into a mobilization for peace and justice begin to emerge. The program culminates with the first NYC Peace March as the voices of the emergent peace movement begin to coalesce with broader globalization movement seeking economic and social justice. 9.11 offers initial critical perspectives of US policy leading up to the World Trade Center attack, necessary to constructing an informed and rationalized response. 9.11 also documents media coverage and racial backlash against Arab-Americans and how those communities are responding.
