Open the 9/11 Memory Box

Extraordinary new film ‘MEMORY BOX: ECHOES OF 9/11,’ with survivors’ confessional intensity rarely seen in conventional documentary filmmaking will air on Sky & NOW TV from 18 January, 9pm.

Compared to the classic “7 Up” / “21 Up” Michael Apted TV series – this is a riveting and intimate film with confession booth style interviews from 9/11 survivors both then and now during the Covid pandemic, 20 years later.

In the months following the 9/11 attacks nearly six hundred people – survivors and eyewitnesses – entered a simple plywood video booth. Inside this safe space, ordinary people used a self-operated camera to record their deepest feelings of trauma and loss.

Some of the original contributors return twenty years later during the Covid pandemic, to a new video booth to reflect on living with grief after 9/11 and during the current pandemic. This riveting and intimate confessional direct to camera from 9/11 survivors both then and now (20 years later) – will air 18th January, 9pm on SKY Documentaries ahead of the BAFTA TV Awards.
