WINNER of the Audience Award at the 2013 Edinburgh International Film Festival. The film chronicles the tragic events that occurred on the Piper Alpha rig on the 6th of July 1998. It was a cataclysm that killed 167 men and left only 61 survivors, each of whom had to fight for their lives to escape the huge, labyrinthine structure and the flames that were consuming it. Chronicling events from the first explosion to the last rescue we hear from those who survived, many of whom have never spoken publicly about the events before. It features heart-wrenching testimonies from the men who were caught up in the inferno, many of whom have never spoken publicly about the events of that tragic night. Directed by Emmy and triple BAFTA winner Anthony Wonke who was also the executive producer of the Oscar-nominated film Watani My Homeland.
