" "The Apple" is the haunting first feature by Samira Makhmalbaf, the daughter of the Iranian filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf, made when she was just seventeen. Based on a true incident and featuring the family involved, the film tells a bizarre bu engaging story. In Tehran, twin sisters live as virtual prisoners of their poor father and blind mother, locked behind bars for all of their twelve years. Their father argues that his daughters "are like flowers. They mustn't be exposed to the sun or they will soon fade...". A social worker attempts to persuade him to give them the freedom to explore the world beyond the gates of their home." -- Container

Claude Lelouch presents the tale of a World Trade Center tour guide who is on the verge of a breakup with his deaf girlfriend when the terrorist attacks occur. Yūsuf Shāhīn presents a young American soldier who comes to haunt a famous film producer and they engage in a highly conflicted dialogue. Danis Tanovič presents the women of Srebrenica (a town where thousands of Bosnian Muslim men and boys were massacred Serbs on July 11, 1995) continuing their monthly protests, despite the September 11th terrorist attacks. Idrissa Ouedraogo presents a young boy in Burkina Faso on the trail of a man he believes to be Osama Bin Laden. Ken Loach's presents a Chilean refugee who offers his condolences to the American victims; he then, in an open letter, describes the CIA-sponsored coup d'ťat of September 11, 1973, which installed the dictatorship of General Pinochet. Alejandro Gonzl̀ez Iñàrritu presents flashes of images of bodies falling from the World Trade Center, accompanied by chanting. Amos Gitaï presents a preening television news journalist enraged that her report about a Palestinian bombing in Tel Aviv will not be broadcast because of late breaking news about the attacks.

Il "produttore artistico" Alain Brigand ha dato mandato a undici registi di impegnarsi in un cortometraggio di 11 minuti 9 secondi e un decimo che ricordasse, a un anno di distanza, la strage di Manhattan. Il film è stato presentato a Venezia, dove ha suscitato polemiche. Nei titoli viene detto che ciascun autore si è espresso liberamente e secondo la propria storia. Il primo "corto" è di Samira Makhmalbaf (Iran). Il quadro è quello dei tre milioni di afgani profughi in Iran. Una giovane insegnante cerca di far osservare un minuto di silenzio per le vittime delle torri. I bambini commentano alla loro maniera la morte di tanti innocenti. (Mymovies)
