Kolkata: Exactly two decades ago today, on September 11, possibly the most horrifying terror attack in history took place in the United States of America. The significance of the assault is unparalleled in history not just in terms of the destruction it caused but also the impact it had on the socio-political culture of a country. More than 3000 people lost their lives as planes came crashing into the World Trade Center, New York. The suicide bombers slammed the first two planes into the twin towers and the next two into the Pentagon building and into a field in Shanksville and Pennsylvania respectively. This gruesome attack was conducted by Al-Qaeda and it lasted for 1 hour and 42 minutes. Many filmmakers have delved into the mayhem and captured the stories related to the attack on the big screen.

Here are some noteworthy films on 9/11.

World Trade Centre: This is a 2006 Hollywood survival-disaster drama directed by Oliver Stone. The film revolves around two Port Authority cops whose lives change forever when they get trapped in wreckage and debris.

Flight 93: The 2006 docudrama directed by Peter Markle is based on the true story of Flight 93. The U.S Capitol was the intended target for the terrorists but how the passengers and crew fought back to change the course of the plane is truly an intriguing story.

Zero Dark Thirty: This 2012 thriller helmed by Katherine Bigelow is based on the real story of killing the mastermind behind the 9/11 attack and one of the most dreaded terrorists in history, Osama bin Laden.

New York: The Kabir Khan-directorial (2009) chronicles the aftermath of the 9/11 attack. The storyline stretches from 1999 to 2008 where the lives of three friends turn topsy-turvy.
