Audience Award Nominee/ Documentary
In tense detail, this riveting new documentary explores the 6 July 1988, disaster on the North Sea oil rig Piper Alpha. The film skillfully combines archival footage and audio recordings with present-day filmed interviews to recreate the suspense and horror of the disaster and to unfold the complex emotions of those who survived.
