On October 13, 1972, a chartered twin-engine plane carrying a Uruguayan rugby team crash-landed into the Andes mountains, forcing the survivors to endure starvation, frigid temperatures, and extreme weather conditions. That true story is now being told in the critically acclaimed Netflix movie, 'Society of the Snow' (2023), by Spanish director J.A. Bayona. The historical thriller chronicles how the survivors made it through the infamous disaster.  In addition to many other honors, it has been nominated for Best International Feature Film, as well as Best Makeup and Hairstyling, at the 96th Academy Awards.
