There is the story from Samira Makhmalbaf (Iran) where somewhere in Iran people are preparing for the attacks from America. There a teacher is trying to educate her students by informing them about Innocent People being killed in WTC massacare. Then comes a story from Youssef Chahine (Egypt) where a Film Maker comes across face-to-face conversation with a Dead Soldier in the WTC attack and a Dead Hard Core Terrorist who was involved in WTC attack. Then we see a story from Idrissa Ouedraogo (Burkina Faso) where a group of Five Innocent childrens sees Osama Bin Laden and plans to kidnap him and win the reward money from America. Then we see the story from Alejandro Gozalez Inarritu (Mexico) where you see a Black Screen and slowly you see the real footage of WTC buildings coming down. And the people who are stuck in the building are jumping out of it to save thier lives. The other most important story is from Mira Nair (India) where a mother is struggling to get respect for her Dead Son whose name is falsely trapped in WTC massacare!
After September 11 attack, Our heart beat automatically starts pumping if we hear two names anywhere in the world.. First is World Trade Centre and the second is Osama! This film totally changes our perception and makes a strong point by claiming something more to it.
I will definately recommend this movie to everyone who loves to have such kinds of Home DVD Collection. Definately worth every penny you spend. But please don't expect anything more apart from Films in this DVD. There is ofcourse Filmographies of the Film Makers but No Extra Features.
What I didn't expect was to be so brought into the storylines that time just stood still.
I immediately went to Amazon.com to order for my home collection.
I immediately and highly recommend this and also remind all who view to first set your English subtitle option on your home player so you can fully experience this dare I say masterful work.
Thank you to all who made this film possible.
