Generation 9/11- An Interview with the Filmmaker

Generation 9/11- An Interview with the Filmmaker

This year marks the 20th anniversary of September 11th. For many of us, that tragic morning felt like a line drawn in the sand. You remember what you were doing, where you were—and who you were—before it happened. Then, the world—and your view of it—changed forever. Now that we’re moms? The day, and anniversary, somehow seem to hold even greater significance. The children who lost parents in the attacks are no longer children, but young adults. A new documentary, Generation 9/11, features seven of the children who were born after their fathers died on September 11th, 2001. We spoke to filmmaker and mom Liz Mermin about this fascinating—and simultaneously sad and hopeful—project.
