“In the Shadow of the Towers: Stuyvesant High on 9/11” Advanced Screening


When the Twin Towers were attacked on September 11, 2001, students had just started their day at Stuyvesant High School, a few blocks away. The upcoming HBO documentary, In the Shadow of the Towers: Stuyvesant High on 9/11, offers a unique eyewitness perspective on that tragic day – how it felt to be a young person at ground zero and how it forever changed the lives, and dreams, of eight former students and their families.
