The Naudet brothers, along with Netflix, announced today that their new project November 13, will launch mid-year and will be available exclusively to Netflix members around the world.
November 13 is a three part documentary in which Jules and Gédéon Naudet, Directors of 9/11, explore the human stories behind the terrorist attacks that took place in Paris on November 13th, 2015.
Following the chronology of the events, the documentary will share testimonies of the people brought together by tragedy, from the survivors, the fire department, the Police and the leaders of the French government including French President at the time of the events, François Hollande.
“We feel it is a great privilege to be able to share these incredible stories of survival and hope. This is a project very close to our hearts, and we truly found the right partners at Netflix to make it come to life,” say Jules and Gédéon Naudet.
“We are inspired by the incredible filmmaking process and storytelling, as well as the great care and integrity Jules and Gédéon brought to the stories of the victims and first responders” says Erik Barmack Vice President of International Originals at Netflix. “This is an important project for everyone here at Netflix, and we are honored to be able to provide a platform to help tell the stories of all those who went through these shattering events.”
The three part documentary will be executive produced and directed by Jules and Gédéon Naudet (Goldfish Pictures); and produced by Propagate (Executive producers for Propagate are Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens) and No School Productions (Marie Drucker as Associate Producer).
