Reuters: 9/11 documentary director wants truth to prevail

The director of a new documentary on September 11 fears that two upcoming Hollywood dramatizations of the World Trade Center attacks may eclipse her project. “I hope the truth does not get lost amongst the fiction,” Linda Ellman, a former NBC News producer, who made her film directorial debut with “On Native Soil,” told Reuters. Ellman’s goal with [the film], airing next month on cable channel Court TV, was to stay true to the 9/11 Commission Report — the government’s account of the suicide hijackings that killed about 3,000 people — and present an historically accurate version of events as they unfolded, almost in real time. Sue Zeidler reports.
