The Twin Towers were iconic, a fixture on the New York skyline but also on postcards, merchandise, television shows and in the movies.
As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, a new World Trade Center is being built in their space, but New-York based director and cartoonist Dan Meth is determined not to forget.
Through a short montage he created of all the towers’ film cameos, Meth shows the many ways in which directors chose to deal with the buildings they didn’t know they’d one day lose, “sometimes featured prominently in the foreground, sometimes lurking in the distances,” Meth writes.
Meth created the montage, he wrote on the video site Vimeo, to “celebrate the towers' all-too-short film career with songs that capture the passing decades. Man, I miss them.”
