Directed by Gonzalo Arijón
“ONE OF THE GREAT TALES OF HUMAN SURVIVAL! A cinematic tour-de-force.”
-John Anderson, Variety
It is one of the most astonishing and inspiring survival tales of all time. On October 13, 1972, a young rugby team called “The Old Christians” 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. Thirty-five years later, the survivors returned to the crash site—known as the Valley of Tears—to recount their harrowing story of defiant endurance and indestructible friendship.
Told in the 1973 worldwide bestseller Alive (and the 1993 film adaptation starring Ethan Hawke), this shocking true story finally gets the cinematic treatment it deserves. Visually breathtaking and crafted with riveting detail by documentary filmmaker (and childhood friend of the survivors) Gonzalo Arijón, Stranded is by turns hauntingly powerful and spiritually moving.
