Rig 20

UK, 1952 (MIFF 1953)

Director: David Villiers

Record of five weeks' battle against an oil-well fire, the first in 40 years of drilling in southern Persia. Photographed under dangerous conditions, which involved considerable risks, the skill and determination of the oil technicians in dealing with this emergency are matched by those of the film people who secured these dramatic and unforgettable pictures.
