9/11 in the Academic Community

Second Sunday meeting at Joyce Beers Community Center screened a unique film directed by A. Zuberi that documents academia’s treatment of critical perspectives on 9/11 by exploring the taboo that shields the American government’s narrative from scholarly examination. Through a powerful reflection on intellectual courage and the purpose of academia, the film aims at changing intellectual discourse on 9/11 and the War on Terror.

WINNER — University of Toronto Film Festival

This documentary confronts the academy’s uncritical response to the defining event of our times. It is an essential viewing for everyone in academe.
