ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Fifty years after the Andean tragedy, sixteen survivors tell the story of how they overcame the insurmountable trauma.On October 13, 1972 an Uruguayan Air Force plane crashed in the Andes. Forty-five people were on board. Many died on impact, or in the hours following the crash. At over 4,000 feet above sea level, under temperatures of -22 F, and without shelter or food, the line separating victims and survivors was increasingly blurry. Only sixteen of them would make it out alive. Pablo Vierci--a close acquaintance of many of those onboard--tells us about the survivors and the victims: where they came from, what they were doing preceding the crash, their experience in the mountains, including the decision to commit cannibalism, the expedition that found them, the days following their rescue, and the life after the tragedy. All of this, from the accounts of those who managed to create a society different from any other, driven by the will to survive.
