Oscilloscope Laboratories just released the trailer for the well-received Sundance 9/11 documentary “Rebirth,” which they picked up out of the festival. The movie, about the emotional healing of five survivors of victims who died in the attack, also features footage from 14 time lapse cameras at Ground Zero that charts the physical recovery after 9/11.
The smartly cut trailer manages the feat of condensing a decade in the lives of the subjects into just over two minutes. If this clip is any indication, Oscilloscope has a profoundly moving documentary on their hands. But the question is, will the event’s 10-year anniversary make people want to watch it or avoid it?
Find out when the film opens August 26 in Los Angeles and August 31 in New York.
