Cracks in the G8


The documentary chronicles the organization of the G8 meeting in Italy, and, after the administration's flash decision to move the conference venue from Sardinia to L'Aquila, examines the situation in Abruzzo in the aftermath of the earthquake disaster. The visual counterpoint highlights the drama of holding a G8 meeting in an emergency zone. The earthquake survivors, the purported beneficiaries of the move, give their account of the situation and the measures undertaken so far. Facts and promises: a journey that explores the hopes, delusions, and problems of a displaced populace denied the right to determine their own future, and to whom ActionAid decided had a right to be heard.
