Sunny Side News Roundup: 9/11 anniversary documentaries disappoint… & much more

 

STORY OF THE MONTH: 9/11 IN DOCUMENTARIES

That was the view from my Brooklyn study on 9/11/2021.

It’s the same window from which I saw the 9/11 attacks, certain that we had lost family, close friends and neighbors, but waiting to find out which ones.

For the 20th anniversary, the news media captured the shock and the grief that persist twenty years later.

Sadly, even today, the documentary landscape avoids interrogating the “Why’s?”:

  • “Who attacked us?”
  • “What motivated them?”
  • “What could we have done differently, before and since?”

The 9/11 anniversary is the lead story in this month’s News Roundup, in partnership with Sunny Side of the Doc.
