Alive : the 1972 Andes survivors
Title remainder
the 1972 Andes survivors
More than 35 years ago, in October 1972, a chartered plane carrying members of a Uruguayan rugby team, along with friends and family, crashed into a remote section of the Argentinean Andes. Thirteen people were instantly killed, but there were 32 survivors left 14,000 feet up in the harsh, forbidding, snow-swept Andes. After two weeks, the search for the missing plane was called off and the remaining survivors dwindled to a mere sixteen. In order to survive their ordeal, they had no choice but to eat some of their deceased companions. With no other option, two survivors, Nando Parrado and Roberto Canessa, left the crash site and trekked for nine days over the Andes in order to save the rest. Featuring interviews with the survivors, this documentary chronicles their incredible tale and provides a first-hand account of their 71 days spent snowbound in the middle of the Andes mountains
