I would like to start off by saying that I do not agree with the choice to make this film and feel that it was in poor taste to create it a year after the events of 9/11. That being said this film is not without its merits. What these individual pieces manage to do is force you to view 9/11 from the retrospective view of the rest of the world. As Americans it is often difficult for the public to acknowledge the rest of the worlds sympathies towards this entire tragedy, yet in a very interesting sense, these directors have managed to encapsulate their respective countries unique take on the events of September eleventh with their short films. Unique and captivating these short films serve as a constant reminder that we are not alone in this world and that some tragedies can effect more than just yourselves.
