Surviving 9/11 - 27 hours under the rubble
“Surviving 9/11” is a 20-minute VR cinematic documentary commemorating the 20th anniversary of the attacks in New York.

By exploring Genelle’s souvenirs, this documentary offers an emotional dive into the defining moments of her life: her first days in New York, her memories of 9/11, and her life today, 20 years later as she returns to Ground Zero for the first time since 9/11.
