Tune In to CNN Wednesday at 9pm ET For: ‘THE FLAG’

The first original production commissioned for CNN FILMS, "The Flag," directed by Michael Tucker and Petra Epperlein, follows the mysterious journey of the American flag featured in one of the most iconic photographs taken at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Tucker says the flag represents a larger feeling of unity. He describes it as "that sense in how we felt in those days and weeks after 9/11 and that's really something that we've also lost."

The 90-minute film is based upon the forthcoming book by David FriendVanity Fair’s editor of creative development and formerly LIFE magazine’s director of photography and will debut Wednesday, September 4, at 9:00pm, 10:30pm, and 1:00am.

Tips have recently flood into CNN on the mystery of the missing flag, Jason Carroll reports.
