Paul McCartney has created a documentary about his experiences in New York City immediately following the September 11th attacks. The film, titled The Love We Make, will debut the day before the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
The film, shot in black and white, shows McCartney’s journey through New York after the devastation, and his help planning and rehearsing for the benefit program “Concert for New York.”
In the documentary, the former Beatle talks with New York citizens as well as celebrities backstage at the concert, including David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Jay-Z, Elton John, Leonardo DiCaprio, Steve Buscemi, Harrison Ford, Governor George Pataki and Former President Bill Clinton
The Love We Make (a line from Abbey Road’s “The End”), will debut Sept. 10. It was directed by Albert Maysles.
“There was so much suffering as a result of 9/11 it’s hard to imagine how one might bring relief to those who were impacted by the attacks, and honor those firefighters, police officers and rescue workers who lost their lives in their heroic attempt to help others,” said Maysles. “But Paul had the answer: music and a film that would tell the full story.”
