  1. The film as a work in progress, and after only three months of work, is an amazing piece which holds great promise of interpreting this cataclysmic event…I particularly thought the “Burnish” style of interviewing individuals and then tying their stories together at the end was brilliant. I also thought the documentary was balanced and informative to someone who was looking from the outside trying to understand…That is what I could hear…I must say how astonished I was during the screening at the incredibly rude intervention by people sitting next to me at the Paramount who were effusive, unrestrained, incredibly crude in their language and clearly reflected the violent nature of the counter protesters who present that awful day. I am very involved in the struggle for bringing all cultures together in this nation, and very frankly, we do not need this type of counter anger to achieve the goal.
