REBIRTH: A FILM BY JIM WHITAKER Available September 6th, 2011 on DVD






Rebirth is a riveting journey into living history - an act of personal witness to one of the most profoundly consequential events in American history and the healing that has come in its wake. The result of a decade-long filmmaking sojourn, the inspirational story of Rebirth follows the transformation of five people whose lives were forever altered on September 11, 2001 - and simultaneously tracks via unprecedented, multi-camera, time-lapse photography the minute-by-minute evolution of the space where the Twin Towers once rose over lower Manhattan. What emerges from the mix is a singular cinematic experience, at once emotionally intimate and spiritually exhilarating - one that provides a direct portrait of how trauma, grief, anger and chaos metamorphose into hope, connection, purpose and rebuilding, as the human spirit transcends unthinkable disaster in time.
