The Sinking of the Concordia: Caught on Camera uncovers harrowing scenes from one of the most tragic events in the cruise industry's history.

When the Costa Concordia sank the passengers were able to film what happened on their mobile phones and video cameras. This film is made almost entirely of just that footage, with no interviews, expert testimony or narration.

Their footage provides an extraordinary minute-by-minute anatomy of a disaster, capturing the reality of what happened in way that is only possible in the 21st century.

From the moment the excited holiday-makers step on board the luxury cruise liner to the realisation that they are on a sinking ship fearing for their lives, viewers see what happened, as captured by those aboard the fateful final journey.

Emotionally honest and journalistically revelatory, this documentary shows the reality of what happens when an accident becomes a tragedy.

The Sinking of the Concordia: Caught on Camera consists of raw user-generated content, as passengers share their first-hand experience of the disaster that unfolded that night.
