WATCH | Spike Lee’s new documentary “NYC EPICENTERS 9/11➔2021½”

I recently checked out NYC EPICENTERS 9/11➔2021½, the four-part documentary produced and directed by critically acclaimed film director Spike Lee. To be honest, at first I thought the film was gonna be soley focused on the tragic events of September 11, being the 20th anniversary since the tragic day. However, what I experienced was actually well constructed visual story that showcases 9/11, COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter Movement, big moments where New York was at the epicenter of the chaos, and how the city was able to overcome and rise above adversity everytime. Check out the official trailer below

The documentary officially premiered August 22, weaving together stories, memories and insights from eyewitnesses of New York’s most challenging times. According to news that surfaced before the documentary premiered, it was mentioned that 30 minutes of the original edit had to be removed, which contained conspiracy theories and irregularities. Nevertheless, this Spike Lee Joint was well enjoyed and very insightful, despite me wanting to know more on 9/11 so check it out!

“…Lee conducted over 200 interviews for the documentary series which features first-hand accounts from residents of all walks of life, including first responders, politicians and journalists alongside Lee and his own family and friends, complemented by a treasure trove of visual imagery. The quintessential New York filmmaker uses his unique sensibilities to craft a multi-faceted mosaic of the city as it deals with some of the most life-changing events of the last twenty years. Beginning with the ongoing global pandemic and the urgency of the Black Lives Matter movement, Lee traverses through time to the devastating terrorist attacks of 9/11. This provocative series is an epic chronicle of life, loss and survival in what Lee calls “the greatest city on this God’s earth.” NYC EPICENTERS 9/11➔2021½ captures the flavor and heart of New York City, exploring its resilience and grit and affirming its innate ability to rebound, rebuild and endure.” – HBO
