Sundance 2011 – Journey of Recovery After Tragedy Drives 9/11 Documentary Rebirth

The documentary Rebirth — which screened in the newly created Documentary Premieres section of this year’s Sundance Film Festival — is the result of a ten-year project to film the recovery of individuals affected by 9/11 and, through time-lapse photography, the rebuilding of ground zero.

Conceived and directed by former Imagine Entertainment president Jim Whitaker, the film aims to show how grieving and recovery take shape — for individuals and a nation — after a massive and tragic event.

Whitaker and two of the subjects in the documentary stopped by the AMC News studio at Sundance to discuss the film with correspondent Jacob Soboroff.
