McCartney Documentary Shares The NYC Love

02:01 PM Thursday 7/21/11 | |

Fans will get a behind the scenes look at Paul McCartney’s 2001 “Concert for New York City” as part of a new documentary about the Beatle’s experiences in The Big Apple immediately after the September 11 terrorist attacks.

The documentary, titled “The Love We Make,” will air on Showtime Sept. 10, the day before the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The New York Times blog Arts Beat reports that the film was directed by Bradley Kaplan and Albert Maysles, who co-directed “Grey Gardens” and The Rolling Stones documentary “Gimme Shelter” as well as 1964’s “What’s Happening! The Beatles in the U.S.A.”

On the morning of Sept, 11, 2011, McCartney was on a plane that was grounded on the tarmac in New York because of the attacks. The next month he put on a benefit concert at NYC’s Madison Square Garden Arena to raise money for charity and honor the victims of the attack and efforts of the rescue workers.

Reuters reports that the film, which was shot in black and white, includes clips of McCartney rehearsing for the “Concert for New York City” and talking to New Yorkers on the street. Backstage film footage from the benefit concert features David Bowie, Mick Jagger, former President Bill Clinton and Leonard DiCaprio. Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and Pete Townshend also make appearances in the documentary, according to the New York Times.

“It was an honor to be able to help New York and America at that time in its history,” McCartney said in a statement posted by the New York Times. “There was a feeling of shock and fear in the air that I thought we could help alleviate with music. And the fact that so many people stepped up to join us made for a very uplifting evening for us all.”
