Interview with 9/11 in the Academic Community director

A Canadian filmmaker, AZ, joins James to discuss his award-winning 2013 documentary, 9/11 in the Academic Community: Academia’s Treatment of Critical Perspectives on 9/11. AZ also discuss his own experiences as a university student contributing to his creation of the film, as well as more recent projects addressing geopolitics and the “war on terror.”

9/11 in the Academic Community features interviews with several notable academics, including John McMurtry, Graeme MacQueen, Lynn Margulis, and Walter G. Pitman, to examine scholars’ critical perspectives on the events of September 11, 2001 and how these have been received in their respective academic fields. Contrary to the widely-held notion that academe is a bastion of free thought and inquiry, university faculty and administrators are often indifferent, if not hostile toward, colleagues that study or take public stances on controversial topics.

Using this context, the film also addresses dilemmas within university settings, including the commonplace use of terms that act as “thought-stoppers” in academic discourse, and the profound implications of the fact that the official 9/11 narrative is based on the testimony of tortured prisoners.

He also addresses his experience in developing strategies for appealing to academic community constituents that stand apart from standard appeals to facts and reason that have come to characterize the truth community.

9/11 in the Academic Community was awarded for “Documentary Achievement” at the University of Toronto Film Festival. Since its release, has also received the praise of prominent professors and university administrators alike.



Perhaps there have been more significant documentaries, articles and interviews posted here on 911blogger, but I can't remember when. This interview is, in my view, an extraordinarily important event and the ideas expressed deserve thoughtful consideration - as thoughtful as Adnan was in constructing his great documentary 9/11 in the Academic Community. Many of us have shared in and been puzzled by otherwise intelligent people's inability to accept and process the implications of '9/11 truth' - this interview speaks smartly and directly to that phenomenon.

Will take a listen. Thanks.

I like James Tracy, but I don't know what to make of his site. It's getting a little wacky these days. He doesn't seem to be vetting articles that come in.
