Films include:1. THE END OF SUMMER - Frazer Bradshaw (3:00)2. THE VOICE OF THE PROPHET - Robert Edwards (7:00)3. CHINA DIARY (911) - Eval Ilona Brzeski (12:00)4. ISAIAH'S RAP - Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman (3:00)5.… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's not just that it's a good movie. I think we need it."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The results vary wildly, from long and rambling to minor masterworks."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Though none of these 13 videos culled from the project is superb on its own, the mix of perspectives encourages us to think analytically about our own responses and the sources of the terrorists' hatred."
‑ Fred Camper, Chicago Reader
"It's a little tacky but not unexpected."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"If you're like a lot of people, you're probably sick of hearing about 9/11. Yet the pervasive sense of dread, and wonder, refuses to go away."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
