In his film, Kiyong asks, “Migrants have often left much behind – emotionally, physically and financially – to start new lives and exist without the support networks of extended family and old friends. How do they cope with the trauma, loss and ongoing physical upheaval and sense of dislocation wrought by a natural disaster so severe that even established, lifelong residents have fled elsewhere?”
The film, by Kiyong Park featured in NZ’s 43rd International Film Festival, following not long after the earthquake in Christchurch on the 22nd of February 2011.
