A Shocking Reminder - Part Two

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2012

The second half of this documentary following the effects of the Christchurch 2010 earthquakes revisits its subjects in the days after the catastrophic events of 22 February 2011. Devastation is now widespread, the death toll is growing and aftershocks number in the hundreds. Over the next eight months, seriously injured bodies mend, but while there are moments of hope, lives are on hold and nerves are being stretched to breaking point by the constantly moving ground, recurring liquefaction and uncertainty about whether precious homes can, or should, be rebuilt.

One thing about the earthquakes is that it's made us free of possessions.
– Brigid Ryan
