"World Trade Center" tells the story of the last survivors pulled from the collapsed twin towers and rescuers who risked all to save others.  This website http://www.awesomestories.com/movies/world_trade/world_trade_ch1.htm links to primary resources including relevant sections of the 9-11 Commission Report, pertinent exhibits from the only trial the U.S. government was able to conduct about the attack, video clips of the day's events, photographs (in slide-format) prepared by leading news organizations and video interviews with the actual people profiled in the film.  It also links to the "September 11 Documentary Project" at the U.S. Library of Congress, with special focus on the reaction of children and young adults to the attack.
