IAC-owned distributor¬†Electus International has secured the global distribution rights, excluding the U.S., to Jules and Gedeon Naudet’s documentary 9/11.

The doc contains the only known footage of the first plane hitting the North Tower, and follows the rescue efforts in that building before both the North and South Towers collapsed.

The Emmy winner for Outstanding Non-Fiction Special will broadcast internationally on the 15th anniversary of the September 11 tragedy. It is exec produced by Ben Silverman, chairman and CEO of Electus.

9/11 first premiered on U.S. broadcaster CBS in 2002, one day short of the six-month anniversary.
