Berge Istra

MS Berge Istra was one of the largest ship in the world, owned by the Norwegian shipping company Bergesen d.y. Three years after the launch, the ship mysteriously disappeared in the Pacific Ocean. No distress signal had been sent. The largest naval search in peacetime was launched and after twenty days the ship was declared missing and the largest compensation in history was paid for it. Through intimate witness stories, conversations with shipbuilders, sailors and families of victims, using previously unpublished archival material, the film Berge Istra explores the secret of the disappearance of the Yugoslav Titanic, one of the greatest mysteries in maritime history.
