Storyline

In 2015, Nepal was struck by a devastating series of earthquakes that left around 9,000 dead and three million people homeless. 50,000 classrooms were either destroyed or damaged putting the future aspirations of a generation of children at serious risk. Within a month after the earthquake, CEO of Australian charity the Logged On Foundation, went to Nepal to help seven schools affected by the disaster. The film documents the impact the disaster has had on rural communities and the struggles they now face to provide a quality education for their children. It also portrays a country that was faced not only with the challenge of rebuilding after a disaster, but with the political strife that followed with the introduction of Nepal's first Constitution which plunged the country into deeper economic turmoil and delayed efforts to rebuild.

Well paced,touching, deeply interesting
26 July 2016 | by emundanaSee all my reviews

Earth Q is a unique journey into post earthquake Nepal. Taken over a number of months as Marc reconnects with people LoggedOn was supporting, it looks more deeply into the effects of the earthquake, beyond the sheer, overwhelming infrastructural damage. It is a sympathetic and illuminating film about the people who make up Nepal and are at the forefront of her recovery. Well paced to maintain interest, there are some quirky and humorous scenes interspersed between interviews, magnificent panoramas, and a travelogue of Marc's experiences. This is an authentic movie, well worth watching. It is unique because these villages and peoples are remote and not normally accessed by Westerners.Marc's narrative was a perfect explanatory counterpoint. I laughed,cried,was awestruck by the largeness of Nepal and humbled by the subjects of the Nepalese people. This was more than a documentary, it was an experience.
