News & Interviews

Craig Zisk ('The Looming Tower' director) felt 'pressure to honor the people who lost their lives' on 9/11 [EXCLUSIVE ... - per Goldderby

In revisiting the al-Qaeda attack on the World Trade Center, Zisk and the rest of the show’s creative team “wanted to make sure that, in each scene, we weren’t doing anything that could possibly offend” the victims and survivors, while still “trying to get at the truth.” That was an emotional task for all involved. “We shot in New York,” he explains, “so a lot of the crew members had gone through 9/11 and lost loved ones or friends. It brought us all closer together because we shared stories and really made sure we talked about it, and didn’t just let people be off on their own.”

Aaron: When you know in these moments you want to paint and create your tone using these visual effects, that’s the most exciting for us. Because we’re not just filling in the background, we’re informing the tone of the scene.

“The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11” was published in 2006 after five years of work “traveling around the world, mainly in the Middle East and South Asia.” It was a “long, lonely time” for Wright, and it was challenging to research since his “two main sources were terrorists and spooks.” But he considered the book his “mission” and “probably the most important thing I’ll ever do as a writer.”

It all could have been different if the FBI and the CIA had been willing to cooperate. “No one has been held accountable and no one ever will be,” said Wright. “I hope we can provide some kind of narrative accountability for what happened on these days.”
