Sundance Marks 9/11

Sundance Channel will mark the five-year anniversary of 9/11 with a new documentary produced in cooperation with CBS News Productions, one of three films to air Sept. 11, 2006.

Dust to Dust: The Health Effects of 9/11 is about first responders now seriously ill and fighting for compensation, mirroring somewhat the fight of some vets for Agent Orange compensation following Viet Nam.

Also slated are a film on the history of the sphere sculpture that stood between the towers, from construction to the revival of its remnants as a memorial in Battery Park; and the TV debut of September 11, an anthology of 11 short films by 11 directors from 11 different countries.

Contributing editor John Eggerton has been an editor and/or writer on media regulation, legislation and policy for over four decades, including covering the FCC, FTC, Congress, the major media trade associations, and the federal courts. In addition to Multichannel News and Broadcasting + Cable, his work has appeared in Radio World, TV Technology, TV Fax, This Week in Consumer Electronics, Variety and the Encyclopedia Britannica.
