Memorial Video: “China Shaken”

Yet another sad video story to present after “eDump.” But this one was so heartbreaking to make that my laptop crashed right after I finished editing it at 3 am on Saturday, May 24 (true story). The earthquake and its aftershocks rocked the whole nation, and certainly overseas Chinese too. Both my wife and I cried before or during the video’s production. Chinese around the world have probably shed billions of tears for their friends, relatives, or unknown victims that have been affected by this tremendous disaster.

With this video, I hope to bring more attention to the pain and hardship millions of refugees from and around Sichuan have to go through to rebuild their homes, governments, hospitals, and schools. In nine minutes, you can see the horror and destruction that nature imposed on humanity in a rural yet densely-populated corner of southwest China. This was of course not an attempt to tell the whole story but I hope it gives a sense of the heartbreak and devastation of “a nation under attack (by nature).”

Here is the updated, HD version and you are encouraged to send it to as many of your friends as you can. (Note: the opening has been changed because some say the text message baby story may be fake. Here is the original version on YouTube)
