This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

It was a day that changed America, and this year, more than any other, there are a host of documentaries and specials reexamining September 11 and its aftermath from different perspectives.

Some look back historically through the lens of first responders and government officials, while others reflect on questions of how and why the attack happened.

Additional films explore the lives of children who lost parents to the tragedy, and the heroes who continue to battle for funding for their healthcare needs.
