16 Acres (2012)
The rebuilding of the World Trade Center is the most architecturally, politically, and emotionally complex urban renewal project in American history. From the beginning, the rebuilding effort has been fraught with controversy, drama, delays and politics. The struggle has encompassed eleven years, nineteen government agencies, a dozen projects, and over $20 billion. (c) Official Site

Critic Reviews for 16 Acres
A fascinating portrait of municipal and private interests trying to make headway in the charged atmosphere of devastating personal loss and wounded national pride.
This alternately amusing and heartbreaking documentary coherently chronicles the endles process of rebuilding Ground Zero.
A documentary that features forthright interviews with major players and gives a good sense of the infighting and pettiness without getting bogged down in it.
This interesting but undeniably bottom-line-minded chronicle of the rebuilding at Ground Zero provides a unique look at civic strife and a city's spirit.
Hankin's film finally makes the indigenous variety of deadlock particular to New York politicos seem as quaintly comforting as a buttered bialy.
16 Acres is a 9/11 documentary, but not that kind of 9/11 documentary [...] it explores the stew of hope, frustration, ambition, and PR spin-cycling involved in the decade-plus effort to rebuild what terrorists so quickly tore down.
