ThoughtsMemory Box: Echoes of 9/11 is a documentary that saw the survivors of the 9/11 attacks, give personal recordings of what they felt, experienced on that tragic day. In 2021, some of these people get to return to the booth, to show how the events of that day changed their lives forever. The string of interviews will show the struggles they have been through since that day. We see the painful memories of the day that shock everyone who lived through it, making this a difficult watch for anyone who never understood how to feel about what we went through. Memory Box: Echoes of 9/11 is a documentary only looking at the people survived, there is no deep dive into who was behind it, why it happened, it is a pure examination of the survivors trying to show what it felt like to make it out alive and the impact it had on their lives.
