Raue advised Zeitsprung on the production of the Documentary „The Schettino Files”.

On January 13, 2012, the cruise ship Costa Concordia sank just 100 meters away from the Italian island of Giglio because it had hit a rock. Of the four thousand people on board at the time, 32 died in the wake of the accident. Produced by Zeitsprung Pictures GmbH, Sky Studios and Italy’s Rai Documentari, the documentary „The Schettino Files” focuses on the meticulous portrayal of the disaster on board. The documentary is based on eyewitness accounts, amateur videos of passengers and rescue teams, and reenactments. The reenactments focus mainly on the actions on the bridge around Captain Francesco Schettino, identified as the main culprit.

The documentary was first broadcast on Sky on January 13, 2022, exactly 10 years after the accident.
