Rebirth trailer promises inspiration

Rebirth.jpgRebirth is a documentary from Jim Whitaker that follows five people whose lives were changed forever by the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers on September 11th 2001. While it follows their lives over this ten year period and how they cope with the pain and tragedy of that day, it also follows the development of the location of the Twin Towers, minute by minute using time lapse photography.

While the trailer doesn't give away too much it does hint that this is going to be a painful, emotionally draining, but also a hugely worthwhile film that addresses something more, something about any loss, grief, guilt, and acceptance and finally moving on with your own life.

I think the trailer for Rebirth could have gone much further, but it does paint a powerful picture and promise a lot more, and you can see the slow transition through the trailer.

Here's the blurb for the film.

Rebirth is a riveting journey into living history - an act of personal witness to one of the most profound events in American history and the healing that has come in its wake. The result of a decade-long process by director Jim Whitaker, the inspirational story of Rebirth follows the nearly ten-year transformation of five people whose lives were forever altered on September 11, 2001 - and simultaneously tracks via unprecedented multi-camera time-lapse photography the minute-by-minute evolution of the space where the Twin Towers once rose. Both a singular cinematic and human experience, Rebirth is deeply intimate and uplifting - providing a moving portrait of how trauma and grief metamorphose into hope and rebuilding as the human spirit transcends the unthinkable over time.

There's really not much more to say about it after that other than lead you to the trailer which you can see over at Apple Trailers or right here.
