REBIRTH is a riveting journey into living history, an act of personal witness to one of the most profound events in American history and the healing that has come in its wake. The result of a decade-long process by director Jim Whitaker, the inspirational story of REBIRTH follows the nearly ten-year transformation of five people whose lives were forever altered on September 11, 2001, and simultaneously tracks via unprecedented multi-camera time-lapse photography the minute-by-minute evolution of the space where the Twin Towers once rose. Both a singular cinematic and human experience, REBIRTH is deeply intimate and uplifting, providing a moving portrait of how trauma and grief metamorphose into hope and rebuilding as the human spirit transcends the unthinkable over time.

After the events that took place on 9/11, there was always that wonderment in the back of my mind, "I wonder how the families, and the friends of the victims are today." And I wondered that from time to time, like on Christmas's, or on my birthday when I wonder how they are on their loved one's birthdays. Watching this humanized the events that took place. Everything that happened was horrific, catastrophic, but in a way even though we could see everything that took place that day, it still seemed unreal and unfathomable. Watching this documentary has made this real. Seeing the pain and anguish, and rebirth of these people has made 9/11 real and has made me more compassionate, and thankful. This documentary was made beautifully, and I have watched it over and over when it was on HBO, and I searched far and wide for it on the internet after it no longer showed on the tv. There are very few ,movies and shows that I watch that have an impact on me, this is definitely top 5
