Charlie Victor Romeo

All planes have a 'black box', which record everything that is being said in the cockpit. If a plane crashes, you can find out what happened. 'Charlie Victor Romeo' is based on six real black box recordings from flights in trouble, reconstructed down to the smallest detail in a simple cockpit set and shot in 3D. Each chapter is precisely introduced with date, route, aircraft type, number of passengers and a floor plan of the aircraft. Where the 3D in fiction filmmaking is used to create a overwhelmingly chaotic realist effect, here it instead intensifies the psychological reaction in the cabin when the alarm suddenly goes off. And it does so in such a compelling way, that the film has since even been used as training material by the U.S. Air Force. 'Charlie Victor Romeo' was even originally conceived as a stage play in New York, and its minimalist set and design supports the actors' performance. The awareness that all situations are reenactments of real events is also reinforced by the statistical objectivity that all disasters are (also) subject to. A cold-sweating study in 'damage control'. If you suffer from fear of flying however, then this might not be the film for you.
