Breaking News

It was at 2:28 p.m. on May 12, 2008, when a devastating earthquake shattered the villages of China's Sichuan province, leaving 69,000 people dead and 15 million displaced.

Little more than a year after the quake, Du Haibin's film "1428" won the Orizzonti prize for Best Documentary at the 2009 Venice Film Festival.

Without judgment but with a deep compassion for their subjects, the filmmakers of "1428" bring us a myriad of individual stories of absurdity, confusion and grief.
