When a million people buy a copy of a novel, Hollywood usually takes notice. When over a million people buy a copy of a 650 page, small print, government-issued book, even I have to pay attention. On Native Soil is a documentary about September 11. Using the 9/11 Commission Report we study the attack and the systemic flaws that allowed it to happen. Narrated by Kevin Kostner And Hillary Swank, on Native Soil was nominated for an Oscar in 2005.
Of the film, Variety says, “Top-drawer editing and reporting help make sense of a complex story. High-impact footage, smartly organized, combines with emotional stories of loss and survival, and the quietly inspiring specter of ordinary Americans, many of them parents of victims, who insisted that the 9/11 Commission be created to investigate the tragedy and implement reforms.”
