This film relates the mournful account of the 2000 submarine disaster which claimed the lives of all 118 Russian crew on board. An explosion on The Kursk, a nuclear-powered Russian submarine, killed most of the men aboard and left the few survivors to huddle in waterlogged and oxygen deficient rear compartments where they anxiously awaited rescue. It was a race against time with oxygen levels running low as the Russian government persisted with the inadequate resources of their own fleet rather than accepting international aid. Whilst Putin famously carried on his holiday at a Black Sea resort, keen to deny any embarrassing state of emergency, Commodore David Russell, played by Colin Firth, offered submersible and divers which were, sadly, kept in reserve by the stalling Russians until it was too late.
Tickets £5 on the door. Doors open at 7pm – come early to avoid disappointment.
