World Cinema Narrative
Charlie Victor Romeo
CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO – USA
With dialogue taken from actual black box transcripts of six real-life major airline emergencies, CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO is a haunting, riveting theatrical experience superbly translated to film by directors Robert Berger, Patrick Daniels, and Karlyn Michelson. Started on stage in 1999 at the Collective: Unconscious Theater on the Lower East Side, this compelling, almost experimental piece recreates the tense cockpit scenes word-for-word based on the CVR, or Cockpit Voice Recorder. With unsparing truthfulness, the film has been embraced by the aviation community and used as a training video for pilots. It is truly unique cinema, stretching the boundaries of film, theater, and the traditional documentary.
Co-Directors: Robert Berger, Patrick Daniels, Karlyn Michelson
