Please note: The trailer focuses on the morning of September 11 and the mobilizing of the rescue response. Each viewer’s response will be different, so you may want to be aware if the trailer is going to be shown before a film you are planning to attend. If you anticipate that you do not want to see the trailer, don't hesitate to talk to theater staff. Feel free to ask a theater manager about the trailers being shown before the movie you are about to see - this may take some time, so plan appropriately. Likewise, the decision to view the movie may be difficult for family members, witnesses of the events and survivors of the attacks.

We encourage you to talk with loved ones before viewing the movie and to consider ways to help prepare yourself for the types of reactions you may experience. If you feel you need additional support feel free to call us at (212) 575-1878 or visit the support resources section of our website by clicking here.
