As the 20th anniversary of 9/11 looms near, William Basinski contemplates the enduring legacy of The Disintegration Loops (his elegy to the 2001 Attacks), while quarantined in the midst of COVID-19. All of the interviews are shot on Zoom, interspersed with dramatically eerie shots of an almost empty NYC at the outset of the pandemic, and loaded with amazing archival footage of William growing up and becoming the true visionary he was always meant to be.



David Wexler is President of Cinema 59 Productions. He is a writer/director based in New York City. Prior to his feature films (Evil Weed, The Stand Up, Anchors, Turtle Island, Last Supper, Vigilante), David focused on television, creating and producing the critically acclaimed reality show College Life for MTV.
