9/11 Boatlift – Watch How Heroic Boat Owners, Not the Gov’t, Performed the Biggest Maritime Evacuation in History
The biggest maritime evacuation in history took place on September 11, 2001 in Manhattan.
It was handled by a spontaneous fleet of hundreds of boat owners, large and small, who rushed to help people in need without any concern for their own safety.
I bet you NEVER heard about these unpaid first responders before – because it doesn’t fit the “government is god” narrative.
Tom Hanks narrates the epic story of the 9/11 boatlift that evacuated half a million people from the stricken piers and seawalls of Lower Manhattan. Produced and directed by Eddie Rosenstein. Eyepop Productions, Inc.
BOATLIFT was executive produced by Stephen Flynn and Sean Burke and premiered on September 8th at the 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Summit: Remembrance/Renewal/Resilience in Washington. The Summit kicked off a national movement to foster community and national resilience in the face of future crises.

The film was made with the generous support by philanthropist Adrienne Arsht, Chairman Emerita, TotalBank (www.arsht.com)
