“DUST” highlights the tragedy of the people who relive 9/11 and deal with its deadly legacy on a daily basis. While their lives were spared that day, they now face a mounting health crisis. It serves as a reminder of the ongoing human toll of 9/11 - nearly two decades later. As thousands continue to die, survivors are forced to fight political and legal battles for recognition and compensation. “DUST” brings the tragedy into the painful present where survivors are still burdened by the past. Up until now, the 9/11 narrative has mostly focused on “what happened”. As tens of thousands continue to become sick, “DUST” explores a new direction in the narrative: “What is happening now, and what have we learned”?
