Artist Marcus Robinson spent eight years documenting the work at Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan. Robinson shot time-lapse footage using thirteen digital cameras to capture the rise of the tallest building in NYC. Rebuilding the World Trade Center (62 mins.) is a story about construction on an epic scale, but above all it focuses on the construction workers, from the site managers to those who dug the building’s foundations and the ironworkers who assembled its steel frames. The director and workers in the film will sit down for a conversation with New York Times reporter James Glanz, author of City in the Sky: The Rise and Fall of the World Trade Center (2003), following the screening.
