Crash of Continental Connection flight 3407, operated by Colgan Air. It was February the 12th, 2009 when the twin-engine De Havilland Dash-8-402 Q400 crashed in Buffalo New York. I remember seeing it on the news; I was frightened because I was flying in two months to Myrtle Beach on a Q400. After watching air-crash investigations, Stalled In the Sky, I was shocked to find out the cause of the crash. Captain Marvin Renslow, and first officer Rebecca Shaw, are at the controls during this flight.
Alive Introduced with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Alive tells the story of the Uruguayan Rugby team and their friends and family who were involved in the airplane crash of Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 which crashed into the Andes mountains on Friday, October 13, 1972. Of the 45 people on the flight, only 16 survived, resorting to cannibalism to live. Throughout this experience, together as a group or as an individual the passengers come to terms with the understanding of what it means to survive in harsh weather conditions without shelter,food or proper equipments. Their experience and the ordeals they overcame can be introduced in the form of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. There are 5 levels that create Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, Physiological, Safety/Security, Social, Esteem and Self-Actualization.
Therefore freedom is what the average man desires, but not what the average man truly wants. In 2009, an underwear bomber tries to sneak into an airport security and bomb an airplane. Ever since the incident, the airport security has been very stricter and tedious to get through—with every person taking off their shoes and put it on a x-ray machine, then so can be patted down from head to toe a total stranger, and the finally walk through a door that allow the security guard to see every inch of your body. These uncomfortable procedures have been going on for four years now, and yet majority of the people are totally fine with it. The truth is that in our Masalow’s hierarchy of needs, safety is far more important than freedom.
(Argenti, 2013 p. 104). They continued to load flights and allow them to taxi to the runway. Unfortunately the conditions did not clear as expected. With planes backing up from all directions, some passengers waited to board planes that would eventually be cancelled, while others waited for take-off that would never happen. Passengers were unable to de-plane as there were no available gates and the runway equipment used to tow the planes were frozen to the ground.

For example, when Dr. Kendricks begins assembling the able-bodied for the twelve-kilometer hike; the priest and the nuns stay behind to take care of the injured. The art in this specific scene is so emotional and incredible. Another scene where the cinematography gave me a positive affect was when Dr. Kendricks was forced into the helicopter, leaving the refugees stranded in the jungle, unprotected against the rebels. En route to the aircraft carrier, they fly over the original mission compound, seeing it destroyed and all its occupants murdered, as she had predicted. This film was constructed out of rain, cinematography and the face of Bruce Willis.
