September 11 in film and footage

Today marks the eleventh anniversary of the September 11 attacks. This is an appropriate and somber time to reflect on how we got here, what happened, and where we're going. To that end, the Media Services collections include many films about the attacks, including a number of creative responses by filmmakers and footage from the time of the events.

This list was selected to include thought-provoking and interesting items from our collection. It excludes overtly political or controversial films. If you are interested in media that deals more explicitly with criticism of the government or conspiracy theories, those are available as well.
