9/11 filmmaker and survivor to speak to Dake Junior High School students

By News 10NBC Irondequoit News

Students in the Irondequoit School District will have the opportunity to hear stories and first hand accounts of the tragic events of September 11, 2001 when two prominent speakers come to the Rochester area.

Jules Naudet

Jules Naudet, one of the French filmmakers that made the impacting 9/11 movie 9-11 will be in Rochester on September 10 to show this film and speak to students at Dake Junior High School in Irondequoit. Students will hear of his experiences both making the film and how it has changed his life. Naudet is a French filmmaker and resident of America since 1989. He was in New York City at the time of the September 11 attacks and captured footage of the first plane flying into the North tower of the World Trade Center.

The Naudet brothers were in the process of making a documentary on New York firefighters, following rookie officer Antonios “Tony” Benetatos through his experiences in Fire Department of New York academy training. On the morning of September 11, 2001, firefighters examined a reported gas leak when the North Tower was attacked, which Jules captured on tape. The Naudet video footage thus became some of the most comprehensive on-site coverage of the 9/11 attacks in New York.
