9/11: Press for Truth (2006)

Although independent investigations began within weeks of both Pearl Harbor and the Kennedy assassination, the same was not true of the attacks of September 11th. Most are unaware that the formation of the 9/11 Commission was strongly opposed by many in Washington, including the Bush administration. It was only after intense pressure from the 9/11 families, led by a particular twelve calling themselves the Family Steering Committee, that, fourteen months after the attacks, the first hearing finally began.In 9/11: Press for Truth, five of the most prominent members of the Family Steering Committee, including three of the ‘Jersey Girls’ (recently in the news after Ann Coulter’s attacks), tell their story for the first time, providing the most powerful argument yet for why 9/11 still needs investigation.

Adapting Paul Thompson’s definitive Complete 9/11 Timeline (published by HarperCollins as The Terror Timeline), the filmmakers collaborate with documentary veterans Globalvision (Beyond JFK, 1994; WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception, 2004) to stitch together rare, overlooked news clips, buried stories, and government press conferences, revealing a pattern of official lies, deception, and spin.
