Documentary: The Sinking of MS Estonia

To gain a better understanding of what happened to MS Estonia, this documentary presents a good timeline describing the series of events that led up to her sinking. The film features interviews with several of the survivors as well as reconstructions. One thing that shocked me and which I wasn't aware of prior to watching this film is the fact that looters attacked people and robbed them of their valuables as they scrambled to the top deck for safety. It was such a despicable act, beyond comprehension, and many people would feel satisfaction knowing these three men went down with the ship.
