ABOUT THE FILM

Shortly after September 11, 2001, NPR’s Lost & Found Sound brought together radio producers, artists, historians, archivists, and the public broadcasting community to collect and preserve audio remnants of the World Trade Center, its neighborhood and the events of 9/11. Lost & Found Sound and NPR set up the Sonic Memorial phone line to record stories and collect audio contributions. The response was remarkable and moving with hundreds of people from around the world calling in. Picture Projects, a new media documentary company founded in 1995, teamed up with the architectural and new media company, Dotsperinch, to create SonicMemorial.org.
