Annnddd….just like that, another DVD giveaway here at The Documentary Blog! This time, in honour of the upcoming 10 year anniversary of September 11th, we’re giving away a copy of the Oscilloscope release Rebirth. Here’s a synopsis:
Project Rebirth’s film, REBIRTH, is a full-length documentary that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2011. It is the result of a decade-long process by director Jim Whitaker and is a riveting journey into living history. It is also an act of personal witness to one of the most profound events in American history and the healing that has come its wake.
You can read more about Project Rebirth at the official website. It’s worth noting that this DVD includes a second feature length film that consists of 35mm time-lapse footage of the rebuilding of ground zero over the last seven years. It’s said to be the longest time lapse shot in history!
This double disc set includes:
– Feature length audio commentary with director Jim Whitaker and director of photography Thomas Lappin
– English subtitles for the hearing imparied
– 14 cameras, 24 hours — a video about the time-lapse project
– Complete feature length time-lapse edit
For a chance to win a copy of Rebirth, simply send me an email here with ‘REBIRTH’ in the subject line. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address and I will announce the winner sometime next week. Alternately, the DVD is now available for purchase. Good luck!
