Foreign Film: Aftershock
Friday Jan 14, 2022 @ 1:30 PM
In 1976, two seven-year-old twins are buried under the rubble of the deadliest earthquake of the 20th century in China. Their mother is told by the rescue team that freeing either child will almost certainly result in the death of the other, and she chooses to save the boy. In Aftershock, unbeknownst to her brother and mother, the little girl miraculously survives, and we follow the family on their separate journeys over the next 32 years. The film broke all box-office records in China. (2010, in Mandarin with English subtitles, 136 minutes.)
