On Friday the 13th of October 1972, a plane carrying 45 rugby team members crashed in the Andes Mountains. For 72 days, the world thought they were dead. But what 16 survivors endured was far worse than death, driven to what would become headline-making acts of cannibalism in their struggle for life. I Am Alive: Surviving the Andes Plane Crash presents one of the most remarkable human survival stories of all time as it has never been told before: through the first person, on-camera account of survivor Nando Parrado, the best-selling author of Miracle in the Andes. Nando's simple yet powerfully evocative storytelling allows viewers to experience the 72 days of heroism and tragedy through the eyes and memories of a man who lived it. Nando's account is accompanied by new, high-resolution imagery of photos shot by the survivors throughout their ordeal, rarely seen footage of the crash site, and re-creations of the crash and their struggle for survival. Bonus Features: Return to the Valley of Tears Featurette; Nando Parrado Today Featurette; Traces of Tragedy: Artifacts from the Andes Plane Crash; Behind-the-Scenes of I Am Alive: Surviving the Andes Plane Crash; Extended Interviews with Roberto & Laura Canessa, Graciela Parrado, Jose Luis Nicola, and Brother Eamon O'Donnell; Original Photo Slideshows.
