For all the grievously familiar contours of its story, "Rebirth" holds an improbable store of surprises, thanks to the deft, sensitive direction of Bethesda native Jim Whitaker.
Not only one of the best distillations of that day, but a monument to humanity lost and gained.
For a film whose title evokes new beginnings, this portrait of five people devastated by the 2001 terrorist attacks treads dangerously close to necrophilia.
A bit more context about some of the topics the witnesses discuss would have been welcome, but Whitaker's stark, unshowy style is probably the most effective way to approach 9/11.
Rebirth never persuasively builds to catharsis, and that's entirely for the best. Forget transcendence: The quintet's return to normal, quotidian lives is the most inspiring development of all.
Stands as both a tribute and a study in healing.
Whose intimate presentation makes it seem like the ultimate healing process film.
This emotional documentary film about the stages of grief, anger and recovery of people year by year after the 9/11 attacks in New York features subjects who are open, articulate and honest.
It's impossible to walk away from Rebirth unaffected.
Rebirth is essentially a platform for discussion and listening, linking the audience and the subjects through a symbiotic relationship of understanding.
A moving documentary in which survivors of 9/11 lead us to reflect upon the tragic effects of 9/11 and how they can be overcome. Rebirth is about healing.
A unique glimpse into the recovery mechanism of damaged hearts and bewildered minds, how a visage of hollowed-out sorrow after one year becomes a look of more peaceful acceptance down the road.
This documentary follows five people in the aftermath of the World Trade Center disaster for ten years as they deal with scars both emotional and physical. An impressive and reverent tribute to humanity's resiliency in recovering from tragedy. A must see for anyone personally affected by the events of 9/11.
