About the Documentary
Scott Rubenstein is alive today. He is a husband and father. And he is a good man.
On September 11th, 2001, Scott was in the South Tower and walked down the stairs to safety. Nearly 3,000 people died that day, but there were many that day that share Scott's story. Not a horrific story of a life lost or an inspiring story of heroism, but a simple story of escape. Many of the people who walked down the stairs that day understandably don't want to talk about it, but Scott a gifted communicator shares his story in the educational documentary titled Retracing 9/11. And in the documentary, Scott wears his heart on his sleeve when he retraces events that changed the path of his life, events that will stay him and all us forever.
Back in November of 2001, Scott's former college roommate and close friend, Louis De Lauro, interviewed him about 9/11. Then in October of 2011, ten years later the men sat down again to retrace the events of that life-altering day. The documentary, Retracing 9/11, is the perfect teaching tool to help middle school and high school students, who were too young to remember or not yet born, learn about 9/11. Students exposed only to scary news footage and short interview snippets will gain a greater understanding of the events that unfolded that day and the emotional impact it had on a real survivor. And the 12-minute documentary will also deeply affect adults who remember 9/11 so well and give them a different perspective of a day they will never forget.
