United 93

2006

Synopsis Cast & Crew

UNITED 93 tells the story of 9/11 through a meticulous re-enactment of events surrounding United Airlines 93, the last of the four aircraft hijacked on the morning of September 11th 2001, in the belief that by examining this single event something much larger can be found - the shape of our world today. Made with the full support of the families of those on board, UNITED 93 will track in real time the dramatic story of what happened inside the aircraft as well as on the ground, as passengers, crew, civilian air traffic controllers and military command centres struggle to make sense of an unimagined and unimaginable crisis. Paul Greengrass has explored the subject of terrorism many times in his film making career, most recently in 'Bloody Sunday' (2002), a documentary recreation of a momentous 1972 Civil Rights march in Northern Ireland. 'Bloody Sunday' was hailed by critics as a devastating portrayal of the moral vacuum caused by terrorism and won prizes around the world including the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival and The Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. Last year he directed the box office hit 'The Bourne Supremacy' for Universal Pictures. Greengrass said "9/11 was unique - the most important event of our lifetime, casting a shadow over all our futures. It's vital for cinema to begin the task of exploring what it meant, and what it continues to mean today. Hopefully UNITED 93 will be a worthy contribution to that process."
