||Synopsis: The Falling Man is a documentary that examines one of the many images that were circulated by the press immediately after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001. The image in question can be seen above on the cover of the disc. It shows a man plummeting headfirst to the ground, having leapt from the burning towers. After touching on the events of the day and how the nation reacted, the program focuses specifically on this image, the photographer who took it, its subsequent circulation, the public's reaction to it and why it was later deemed UN-newsworthy.

When two planes hit the World Trade Centre on 11/9/01 thousands lost
their lives in a variety of ways. The media was full of images fed live
on television and also in the newspapers; one set of images more than
any other caused controversy and universal condemnation those of
people falling or jumping. Over the next few days these images were
removed and replaced with more images of the heroic response, of the
American spirit in evidence fire fighters, policemen and such. This
documentary looks at the fate of those trapped by the flames who were
faced with a horrible decision and the identity of the famous and
terrible image of the falling man as taken by Richard Drew.
Even years later it is hard to view images of 11th September without
welling up. It is true that the civilian victims of that day are no
less worthy of our remembrance than the civilians killed by the
coalition in Iraq, but personally I have never seen mass slaughter
unfold before my eyes in the same way that it did on this day. We can
debate about whether or not our world should continue to be shaped by
it years later (Afghanistan, Iraq, erosion's of civil rights etc) but
this was not what was going though my head as I watched this film.
Instead what I was thinking about was the people, their fate, their
choices and their lack of options.
I remember the pictures the next day in the UK and recall reports of
people jumping or falling to their deaths and I do recall their
noticeable absence in the days after the event. So I was intrigued by
this documentary because it is not something that the media-savvy US
Government want us to think about, even though it is as real as the
firemen who gave up their lives trying to save others. In my own
opinion those who think that the "jumpers" were not heroic in their own
way simply has not thought about the situation they were in or what
they themselves would do in that situation. This film spends the first
half getting to grips with the attack itself and then the second half
dealing with the investigation into who the man in Drew's photo was.
The first half is naturally emotionally impacting and as disturbing as
I've always found the footage and of 11th September. It is moving to
hear the relatives talk and was tastefully done. The second half steps
away from the day well and it is interesting and a worthy
The film maybe doesn't deliver it that well but it is still engaging
and does pull out a deeper meaning to its existence rather than just
seeking out tabloid headlines. The focus on real people makes it work
and is a good look at a subject that nobody else in the media seemed to
want to address. I suppose in this regard the film is well worth a look
simply because everyone else dropped the subject and focused on the
images that make for a better feeling (the heroes and the heroic
deaths) rather than those that died in a way that was much more
difficult to deal with.
Overall this was a good documentary that deserves a look because of its
subject and also because of the sensitive manner in which it deals with
it. It isn't fun of course but it deserves to be seen for what it does
