China's Unnatural Disaster:
The Tears of Sichuan Province

by
Peter Kwong & Ming Xia

[May 15, 2009]
 

 

China’s Unnatural Disaster: The Tears of Sichuan Province looks at the devastating aftermath of the 2008 earthquake that killed nearly 70,000 people, including many children who were crushed by school buildings. The film follows parents coming to terms with their loss and challenging government officials to explain the inadequate construction.

Prof. Peter Kwong (Hunter College, CUNY), and Prof. Ming Xia (College of Staten Island, CUNY), will lead a post-screening discussion on their involvement with the documentary, and first-hand account of the disaster area.
