The movie I'm about to introduce is titled Twice the fall. It traces back the 09/11 events through the story of two distinct characters, Linda Vasquez and Seth Grayson, respectively confronted with psychological and political issues.
September 11th, 2001, Manhattan. The twin towers collapse, causing the deadliest terrorist attacks in United States history, with about 3000 casualties. The movie opens with the well-known images of the tragedy and takes place a few hours after they were broadcast around the world.
[...] These are the questions raised by Linda's journey. The character is a representation of every soul that had to go through the exact same thing at the exact same period.

The movie enlightens the fact that every event comes with a multiplicity of different stakes, disrupting as much for the common being as for the entire planet, but on different scales. [...]

More specifically, it sheds light on the political and psychological implications that everyone had to face after the attacks, as an individual, but also as a community. Even though they deal with very different kinds of issues, Linda and Seth's stories depict the effect of seizures, whether it involves an internal chaos or a public crisis. [...]
