The acclaimed director Spike Lee is re-editing his docuseries about 9/11, specifically, he is editing the fourth and final episode of his upcoming docuseries “NYC Epicenters: 9/11-2021½” on HBO. The original episode featured the interviews with 9/11 truthers.
Lee said this in a statement sent by HBO to Variety:
I’m Back In The Editing Room And Looking At The Eighth And Final Chapter Of ‘NYC EPICENTERS 9/11-2021½.’ I Respectfully Ask You To Hold Your Judgement Until You See The FINAL CUT.”
The decision to reedit the finale episode of the docuseries came after Lee said in an interview that he still has questions about what happened on 9/11. The original episode of the docuseries which is being re-edited now, previously contained interviews with 9/11 truthers, members of the conspiracy group Architects, and Engineers for 9/11.
In the interview with the New York Times, Lee refused to believe the official explanation given by the government about what happened on 9/11 and said this:
“The amount of heat that it takes to make steel melt, that temperature’s not reached. And then the juxtaposition of the way Building 7 fell to the ground — when you put it next to other building collapses that were demolitions, it’s like you’re looking at the same thing. But people going to make up their own mind. My approach is put the information in the movie and let people decide for themselves. I respect the intelligence of the audience.”
The docuseries, which premiered on Sunday, contains more than 200 interviews conducted by Lee with eyewitnesses of the attacks that happened on September 11, 2001, including responders, journalists, and politicians.
The second episode of the series will air on HBO on August 29, and the third one will air on September 5, and the re-edited fourth and final episode of the docuseries by Spike Lee will air on September 11.
