Channel NewsAsia – Singapore to broadcast original documentary on Nepal Earthquake this week
The Day the Earth Shook captures the shock, grief, anger and hope of everyday Nepalese who are trying to rebuild their lives after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck on 25 April 2015. While the population comes to terms with unprecedented loss, including over 8,000 dead and hundreds of thousands of homes destroyed, some who are still grieving have been mobilized to lend their hand to a nation in need.
The one-hour original documentary captures the spirit and vitality of the Nepalese through the lens of a biker brotherhood racing out to help the country’s lower castes in its most remote areas; a young man processing the sudden loss of five members of his family; a Sherpa who barely survived an avalanche on Everest. These people, and many more locals in the documentary, are not just physically but also emotionally stretched to the limits of human endurance. Witness their stories unravel in the days and weeks following Nepal’s worst earthquake in 80 years.
