| The hijackers were not the only perpetrators of evil on 9/11
"The Woman Who Wasn't There" is a documentary about frustratingly evil woman. 'Tania Head' (she actually has many aliases--this is one of them) gained a lot of notoriety as a leader in the 9/11 survivor community. Often she was in the limelight--acting as a spokesperson for all the survivors of this terrorist attack. The reasons she rose to such notoriety are how compelling and chilling her story is as well as her deliberately insinuating herself into leadership positions in support organizations. The problem is that it turns out that she NEVER was at 9/11 during the attack...heck, it even appears that she wasn't even living in the US at the time!

To tell the story, the film mostly lets Tania and her friends and associates tell their stories. There isn't commentary nor is there really any attempt to explain why she perpetrated this vicious fraud. Personally, I like this about the film as too often people try to explain away bad behaviors--and there really is no need to try to understand or explain. What she did was awful...period. And the film does a good job of projecting this and showing the harm she did to the real victims.
