Newly Released Video Shows Different View of 9/11

Ad Feedback

Friday marks the eighth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C.

New video has been released that shows the event through the lens of New York's amateur photographers.

The video image shows something mangles on the ground and a voice says, "Is that an airline seat? I imagine so."

It's a view of 9/11 that most of us have never seen.

New amateur footage of the September 1, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York was released as part of the launch of a new website that aims to bring together images and stories from that fateful day.

A camera in Brooklyn points through a chain-link fence at black smoke pouring from one skyscraper, while a plane pierces another.

One videographer asks, 'What kind of of crazy person would kill themselves like that?"

Papers fly through the sky and some of them end up in the filmmakers' hands.

On the evening of September 11, another camera finds firefighters trudging through dust-caked streets, carrying their helmets or a spare pair of shoes. The ruined facade of the World Trade Centre is before them. The area strewn with dust and papers.

9/11 was one of the most recorded events of all time and the foundation has acquired 500 hours of video archives assembled by Camera Planet, a private team of filmmakers who collected professional and amateur videos from the day and its aftermath.
