Summary
  • 17 short independently produced films made in the wake of the September 11th tragedy, focusing on underrepresented communities whose viewpoints weren't being aired by the media. From African American students' and Muslim, Arab-American and South Asian childrens' reactions to the events, to Asian Americans and residents of Chinatown reacting to the backlash after the events, the videos represent a cross-section of views from communities of color
  • Forgotten lessons: "A dialogue between two unlikely historical interlocutors is set against a compelling collection of images that situate the horror of recent events within the context of foreign policy, popular mobilization and a desire for a the possibility of a non-violent resistance to the war in Afghanistan"--TWN
  • Through my eyes: "A group of NYC school children assembled in the weeks following September 11th express a wide range of emotions, thoughts and criticisms of the new world in which they now find themselves. A revealing examination of how media representations are reconstructed to take on different meanings by children"--TWN
  • Take a look: NYC Chinatown 9.11: "Captures the thoughts and feelings of the residents of New York City's Chinatown after the World Trade Center disaster of September 11, 2001. Speaking in their own language (Mandarin, Cantonese and English), Chinatown merchants and residents describe the impact of the disaster on their neighborhood, located only 10 blocks away from the former World Trade Center site. The final series of U.S. flag imagery, underscored by a merchant's singing, illustrate a community's self-discovery through disaster, one of resounding patriotism mixed with commercial need"--Http://alsolikelife.com
  • Life or liberty: "The popular cries for increased security since September 11th have glossed over the potential impact that heightened surveillance and policing may have on basic civil liberties. This film highlights the stakes of such cries and what or who might be overlooked in them"--TWN. "Shokriea Yaghi copes with the senseless incarceration of her husband in 9/11's aftermath. A Japanese American woman who lived through the WWII camps shares her bitterness and her fears for the future, as immigration law expert Cyrus Mehta and former federal prosecutor Michael Wildes debate the larger context of antiterror policies"--http://lifeorliberty.org
  • In the spirit of peace: "After September 11th, religion becomes the vehicle for a community looking for commensurability in the midst of an environment that would rather seek quick answers to a larger problem"--TWN. "While the Bush administration, the Pentagon and corporate media were saber rattling in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, there were groups from all over New York City who were calling for peace ... [O]ne such group from New York's Yoruba and Akan communities ... went against the grain and staged a peace march and rally in Brooklyn, New York"--http://www.alsantana.com/films
  • Flag TV: Using documentary footage, text, and stills, Flag TV looks at the shifting meanings of the symbolism of the American flag after September 11, 2001 and questions the way the media, the government and the public at large equate the symbol of the flag with sympathy for the victims and support for national leadership's views as well as competing strategies of mobilization for war, resistance and understanding
  • Salt peanuts: A five-minute video, originally produced as part of ASHP/CML's Labor at the Crossroads cable television series, on how worries of an impending economic downturn following the events of September 11th have caused corporations to cut their budgets. A video blending documentary with narrative, the true priorities of the industry of "friendly skies" are brought into the open as workers' rights are asserted as airline workers protest layoffs at USAir
  • Self defense: "Self-Defense is a documentary portrait of a Taliban-trained jihadist living in New York City. Made immediately after 9/11, this video captures the memories and musings of a fearless man who hates the United States, and holds Osama bin Laden to be a hero"--Http://www.markboulos.com/self-defense.html
  • Terrorism: an American reality: An exploration of how American foreign policy has fueled resentment around the world
  • Homeland insecurity: This film examines the string of hate crimes in the months following September 11th, set within the historical context of jingoism and nationalism in the United States
  • Lockdowns up: This film examines the potentials that privatized prisons see for their industry following the policy shifts after September 11th. A corporate conference call from one of the leading correctional facility corporations, the Cornell Company, details the impact that such shifts offer not only for investors, but for those most prone to racial profiling. Issues touched upon: the War on Terror, the Patriot Act, the criminalization of immigrants and the booming of border control bureaucracies and companies, the Feds' "bailout" of the private prison industry, the U.S.' Internment Camps from World War II
  • Dinner with friends after September 11th: A discussion among friends at dinner about the September 11th terrorist attacks, filmed on location at Sylvia's Restaurant, Harlem, NY
  • Dec. 7th/Sept. 11th: A comparison of how the events and possible after effects of September 11th may mirror those of the attack on Pearl Harbor through a collection of interviews with Japanese-American veterans who, having witnessed the events of December 7 in Hawaii, offer their insight into what has happened and what might come
  • And justice for whom?: Taking up themes of freedom, privacy and policy, civil liberties in the aftermath of the attacks on September 11th, this video looks at how legislation ostensibly geared towards domestic security will affect various communities in the United States and throughout the world
  • We, too, sing America: This short is a poignant and revealing document of the thoughts, hopes and fears of Muslim, Arab-American and South Asian children in the milieu of a country calling for war and unconditional compliance after the events of September 11th
  • Voice of the faceless: Short documentary film about the reactions of black youth in Laurelton, Queens, made in the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks, focusing on communities of color who were mostly ignored by the media
  • Outside lookin' in: This highly stylized video presents opinions about the World Trade Center tragedy through interviews with urban Latino youth on the streets of New York City
