On Native Soil (2006)

on native soil“On September 11th 2001, Osama Bin Laden carried out the deadliest attack ever perpetrated on American soil, leaving tens of thousands grieving their losses.” – Narrator

Number of Times Seen – 1 (25 May 2016)

Brief Synopsis – A documentary that explains the events leading up to the 9/11 commission and its effect on US policy.

My Take on it – The fateful day from nearly 15 years ago has affected so many lives in ways one can’t even try and imagine.

The families of the victims of that day lobbied for quite a while to get a full report of the failures and heroics of that day and finally ensured that there would be hearings in Congress to learn all the facts; the good and bad ones.

This movie tells the tale of the fight of those families and follows through the process that eventually created the 9/11 Commission.

The interviews with survivors, family members of victims and 9/11 advocacy groups gives us a very clear picture of the what happened on that tragic day.

This film gives us quite a comprehensive look at the events of that Tuesday morning and we understand so much of how things happened the way they did.

Kevin Costner and Hilary Swank narrate this film perfectly.

Bottom Line – An insider look at the steps taken to try and ensure that something like 9/11 never can happen again. Interviews with survivors, families of the fallen and 9/11 advocates gives us an almost complete look at the tragedies of that fateful day. Highly recommended!
