Aftershock is now available to stream or download from the Gibson Group Vimeo On Demand page.

 Telefeature Aftershock follows the fortunes of four groups of people in the minutes, hours and days after Wellington is destroyed by 'the big one' – a magnitude 8.2 earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Buried office workers who must pull together; strangers, caught by the tsunami on the ruined motorway, who put themselves in danger to save another; a mother who must reunite her family; and, at the centre of the rescue operation, the controller bunkered down at the Wellington Emergency Management Office.

Aftershock is followed up by Aftershock - Would You Survive? a 45 minute factual programme where we test the average Kiwi’s preparedness for a natural disaster – and ability to survive if the worst happens. Aftershock – Would You Survive? puts an ordinary Kiwi family through their own personal disaster, challenging them at every turn as their world is literally shaken-up and then they’re made to cope in a disaster zone with no help, for three long days.

Available on DVD from the Filmshop.
