I’ve Come From a Plane That Crashed on the Mountains

Miami Beach Cinematheque. Jan 9th, 2009.  Miami Beach Cinematheque. Miami FilmThe documentary I’ve Come From a Plane That Crashed on the Mountains, directed by Gonzalo Arijón, is premiering today at 7:30 and 9:45 p.m. at the Miami Beach Cinematheque.

This is one of the most astonishing and inspiring survival tales of all time. On October 13th, 1972, a young rugby team from Montevideo, Uruguay, boarded a plane for a match in Chile – and then vanished into thin air. Two days before Christmas, 16 of the 45 passengers miraculously resurfaced. They had managed to survive for 72 days after their plane crashed on a remote Andean glacier.

Visually breathtaking and crafted with riveting detail by documentary filmmaker (and childhood friend of the survivors) Gonzalo Arijón with a masterful combination of on-location interviews, archival footage and reenactments, Stranded is by turns hauntingly powerful and spiritually moving. In Spanish with English subtitles.
