In the Shadow of the Towers: Stuyvesant High on 9/11 (2019) | Official Trailer | HBO


♪ (SOMBER MUSIC PLAYS) ♪ WILLIAM VOGEL: I was a senior
at Stuyvesant high school.
TARESH BATRA:It was, I think,
our second or third day.
And I was staring out the window
when I saw an explosion. CARLOS WILLIAMS:
I saw the crash of the plane
into the north tower.
I was 15 at the time. And I called my father
and this is somethingI’ll remember to this day,
my dad said to me,
“Please, please,
just survive.” I don’t think people really talk
about the fact that there were kids there. MAN:I became very afraid.My life was in danger.CATHERINE CHOY:
It is so surreal.
It just felt like a movie.
WILLIAMS:We experienced
being a witness to history.
But also, if you look back
on it, being a part of history. MAN:Absolutely everything
changed that day.
BATRA: There was a lot
of anxiety around the backlash
that people of color
were experiencing.My mother was hearing all
of these stories as well.
And she was scared for me.LIZ O’CALLAHAN:The people
who were together on that day,
really solidified relationships. People thrive, and rebuild,
and recover,despite difficulties.And I think that’s a testament
to all of us.
And I think that is a testament
to not just New York,but also the human spirit.♪ (MUSIC CONCLUDES) ♪

  1. I was 11 on 9/11 and I teach college courses at my local university and there are freshman who only know about 9/11 through their high school history class. It's hard to imagine that time flew by so fast that there's a generation of young adults that didn't experience 9/11.

  2. My ex was a student at PS 89 on 9/11. No one ever talks about the kids who were there witnessing it. Much love to everyone involved in this documentary.

  3. 9/11 was orchestrated by Justin Bieber as a preemptive strike to gain complete and absolute power over our children.
