Two days after the World Trade Center was destroyed by al-Queda, award winning director Ray Farkas recorded a video of people’s reactions to the event. It’s interesting to see how old 10 years ago looks, especially if you lived through that time period. The video itself is reminiscent of a 90’s style recording.
Farkas, who was recording about a touchy subject, used film to show, not tell, as story. He recorded the views and opinions about regular New Yorkers, not just the “important” people. Another strong aspect of the video is that it doesn’t force an opinion on you, it just tells a story from different view points. Some people were ready to support a war while others were unsure how to capture an elusive enemy.
