A documentary dealing with the Itaewon tragedy is being produced in the United States, with plans for release in fall.

On May 11th (local time), American media outlet Deadline exclusively reported that a production team, who won the Christopher Award for Best Documentary with the Paramount+ original documentary “11 Minutes”, is working on a documentary on the Itaewon tragedy.


According to Deadline, Jeff Zimbalist, who runs All Rise Films, will direct the documentary. Meanwhile, Stu Schreiberg, Terence Wrong, Susan Zirinsky, and Josh Gainer will serve as executive producers.

In addition, documentary is scheduled for release in fall of 2023, likely to be around the anniversary of the Itaewon tragedy. 


On the other hand, “11 Minutes”, which covered the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting, was produced in four parts. It also included stories told in first-person, as well as providing a moment-by-moment dive into the progression of the tragedy.

The upcoming documentary on the Itaewon tragedy, titled “Crush”, is also known to be produced in the same way.

Meanwhile, the Itaewon tragedy, which occurred on October 29th last year, was a crowd crush accident that resulted in 159 deaths and 196 injured, causing a shock to many people at the time.
