The Pile

Filmmaker Chris Ingvordsen spent three days in the wreckage of the World Trade Center after 9/11, helping to remove debris, searching for survivors, doing whatever he could to help. He also had a video camera with him and shot about three hours of footage over the course of those three days. Trying to put the experience behind him, he let the video sit in a camera bag for almost ten years. Several months ago, he looked at the footage for the first time and realized it was something people should see.  This moving eyewitness account of the rescue effort is a story that needs be told.
