Disaster

Disaster

DVD1989 25 Minutes

Examines the psychological effects of disasters on those people involved.

It has only recently been recognised that even those people like Andrew Parker, who made his body a human bridge in the Zeebrugge disaster, and David Britton, who risked his life to save people in the Bradford football stadium fire, feel guilt, fear and depression after the event. This may not be logical, but it is a common result of involvement in such tragedies, even affecting bystanders.
Made in 1989 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless.
