REBIRTH, is a full-length documentary that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2011. It is the result of a decade-long process by director Jim Whitaker and is a riveting journey into living history. From early 2002 through 2009, the film crew chronicled the lives of five people directly affected by 9/11. One of the subjects of this film is Tim Brown, 20 year FDNY veteran and owner of the Bravest.com and EmergencyStream.com.
Their narratives are the thread of recovery and resiliency from grief, loss and trauma that comprise the unique message of the film. REBIRTH also simultaneously tracks – via unprecedented multi-camera time-lapse photography – the evolution of the former WTC and the entire rebuilding of the site. Though the film captures the minute-by-minute demolition and redevelopment of the WTC site until 2009, Project Rebirth will continue the time-lapse element of the project until the site is completed in its entirety. Philip Glass composed REBIRTH’s original score.
