"When The Ground Stopped Shaking" is about a community in Haiti attempting to rebuild their lives weeks after the January 12, 2010 earthquake as international aid arrives to offer support.
Directed, photographed and edited by Jace Freeman, the first-time filmmaker presents a cinema-verite portrayal of a refugee camp west of Port-au-Prince.
A documentary about life and death, the film chronicles the regeneration of a nation persevering on uneven ground.
"When The Ground Stopped Shaking" premiered in Indianapolis, Indiana in October at the 2010 Heartland Film Festival.
To support the community that you see in the film, please go to Lifeline Christian Mission's website and consider sponsoring a child.
Jace Freeman is currently working on another film project in Haiti with Sean Clark about homelessness during the rainy season. Visit the Kickstarter page for more info.
**UPDATE** - The Country Club is now finished. Watch a trailer on the site.
