Two photos from September 20, 2000 (top) and October 13, 2001 show the Brooklyn Bridge and the financial district with and without the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York.

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.”
