September 11 (2002),
was and still is available at the main public library here, in Krakow. Free of charge – as it is specified on its cover. That is because this movie tries to raise awareness more than anything else, which it manages to do, with graceful simplicity. I selected some of these stories to show to my students last year. Discussions followed, and, inevitably, my students received a writing assignment based on it, too. I will be posting fragments from these papers soon.
Before I do, let me re-introduce myself: “My name is Alina, and I am not a terrorist.” This year, the movie that cuts into the same September-11 chunk of reality is “My Name is Khan,” which I warmly recommend. If you get a chance to see it, drop a few lines with your impressions on it. What else? Hm… Remember “The Visitor“?
