19-S THE EARTH SHOUTS
September 2017, two earthquakes in 12 days rocked Mexico. One was the strongest in nearly 100 years. A fast-paced documentary with an incredible assemblage of news and private video footage depicting affected cities. Interweaving historical seismic data through digital imagery provides context about Mexico’s vulnerability to earthquakes. It sits on several of the earth’s plates. Highly educational and visually creative.
Planet earth isn't quite a safe home for humans. Millions live in highly seismic areas. A city's subsoil can increase the potential for catastrophes. Why do earthquakes exist?
Two earthquakes in just 12 days. One came from the ocean, south of Chiapas. The strongest in a century, it hit 12 Mexican states hard. The other one struck in the center of the country, very close to the vulnerable and overpopulated capital city. People going about their lives... and involved in tragedies. But, are the deaths of hundreds of people and the collapse of buildings inevitable?
