Media Note
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
August 31, 2011

On September 8, Secretary Clinton will participate in a conversation with TIME Magazine’s Managing Editor Richard Stengel, marking “Beyond 9/11: Portraits of Resilience,” a special screening and portrait exhibition hosted by TimeWarner in New York City. The conversation will begin at approximately 8:15pm.

“Beyond 9/11: Portraits of Resilience” will mark the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York City and their aftermath. The portrait exhibition and TIME/HBO documentary features untold stories - captured in words and images - from 40 women and men who led America, moved the nation, and sacrificed for it, in the hours, days and months that followed September 11, 2001.

The evening events will include: a reception marking the opening of Marco Grob’s TIME Portrait Series exhibition “Portraits of Resilience,” a special screening of the TIME/HBO documentary “Beyond 9/11,” and a conversation with Secretary Clinton and Richard Stengel.

Working with the editors of TIME, award-winning photographer Marco Grob produced the set of portraits which are coupled with oral histories from people including George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rusmfeld, Rudolph Giuliani, Adm. William McRaven (who led the mission that killed Osama bin Laden) and, for the very first time, the only four survivors of the attack on Tower Two of the World Trade Center who were above the point of impact.

TIME Magazine is leading the collaboration of Time Warner outlets, including CNN and HBO, with the special package.

The HBO documentary is in association with TIME and is a 60-minute film that will premiere on the network and HBO GO at 8.46 a.m. EST on 9/11.
