The Unspeakable

I returned to the Whirled Cinema to watch another 9/11 documentary. This little arthouse in the gentrified community in Brixton, south London, has a charming ambiance. Every few minutes a train passes over the railway bridge which makes up its roof and the rumbling sound interrupting the films probably adds to its uniqueness. I went there before to see Incontrovertible, see: This film was The Unspeakable by Dylan Avery, producer of the Loose Change series. This was its British premier and the same group of people seem to be behind the event. I saw Ian Henshall there again and several other people I recognized. I travelled there with my good friend, comrade and space brother Colin Woolford and I was delighted when Nick Kollerstrom turned up. It was great to see him again. I've not spoken to him since our most recent HPANWO Radio interview, see: The film covers the human story of the 9/11 attacks. It follows the lives of three families devastated by losing loved ones in the atrocity. One of them, Matt Campbell, was at the event and did a live question and answer session at the end. He is trying to make the High Court reopen the original hearing into the death of his brother Geoffrey on the 106th floor of WTC1. So far Geoffrey has never had the full coroner's inquest he's entitled to by law. The same goes for the other sixty-seven British victims. The film also covers some American families and how they are affected. One thing they all have in common is that they refuse to climb the One World Trade Centre "freedom" tower. This building functions both as a replacement and also a memorial to the Twin Towers and all those who died in them. These families all have something else in common: they question the official story of 9/11. This is an important point because there are many human interest documentaries about the families of 9/11 victims, but most of them are propaganda pieces and the grieving families are used to promote the idea that if you don't believe the official story of 9/11 then you are somehow disrespectful and you don't care; even that you are exploiting the disaster. That is a predictable response and totally false. See here for details: The Unspeakable breaks through that spiteful deception like no other film to date. I wish Matt and the others luck, and do go and see this film in the cinema if you can. Or you can watch it online. Source:
