“A curious hybrid of documentary and experimental theater. It is also one of the most terrifying movies I have ever seen.”—A. O. Scott, New York Times

Adapted from the critically acclaimed theatrical production, which was presented at the Wexner Center by Collective:Unconscious in 2002, Charlie Victor Romeo (code for “cockpit voice recorder”) dramatizes actual cockpit recordings recovered from the black boxes of six doomed airliners. Both shot and projected in 3D, the viewer is put in the middle of the film’s spare set as actors depict the professionalism of the flight crews under the most extreme duress. (80 mins., 3D DCP)
