Stranded: The Andes Plane Crash Survivors

In October 1972, a plane carrying the Uruguayan rugby team and their entourage crashed into the Andes in one of the most sensational survival stories ever told. But this documentary, made by the childhood friend of several of the survivors, goes beyond the lurid details of cannibalism that shocked the world, and represents the first time these men have told their own story on film - and it is an incredible story. Brilliantly crafted and with touching intimacy, the survivors tell how 16 of the original 45 passengers managed to defy nature, enduring brutal conditions and staying alive for 72 days on a frozen glacier. AKA 'Stranded: I've Come from a Plane That Crashed on the Mountains'.
