THE NEW-YORK FIREMEN – THE RELIEF / TEASER
Following the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, no cameras, not even American ones, had been allowed close to the New York firemen. They just didn’t want to be filmed. The day of the tragedy, they lost 343 volunteers.
For the first time since the tragedy, the NYFD opened its doors to Nicolas Moscara, a filmmaker who has made a specialty of filming law enforcement and rescue workers. “Among the 11 000 people who populate the ranks of the squads, I followed two women” explains Nicolas Moscara: “Josephine Smith, a rookie fireman, whose father died trying to rescue people in the twin towers; and Cindy, a French emergency doctor born in a Paris suburb. A single mother, she traveled to New York a few years ago and decided to stay. I followed their everyday life to be close to the action and put cameras on their helmets.”
An exceptional documentary focusing on one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
