MSNBC Films and Peacock present "Memory Box: Echoes of 9/11," a Yard 44 and NBC News Studios production. The feature documentary, directed by David Belton and Bjørn Johnson, tells the story of September 11th unlike ever before through personal, self-recorded recollections from a plywood video booth that have never been shown on film.

Twenty years later, to mark the anniversary of September 11th, those same eyewitnesses return to the video booth to reflect upon the past two decades. They were able to share their experiences of tragedy, trauma and shock, without directors or camera teams.

Using raw, and in many cases, unedited footage, the film paints an intimate portrait of resilience and human perspective. "Memory Box: Echoes of 9/11" airs Wednesday, September 8th at 10 p.m. Eastern on MSNBC, and will stream exclusively on Peacock.
