13 Seconds. Life after the earthquake

After the earthquake in Kermanshah, a village near the Iran-Iraq border, Iranian filmmaker Milad Tangshir travels to the site to document the days following the disaster.

Amid the ruins and the helplessness of the population, the images gravitate to the fragility of the life we have. Nature, after all, can make us lose everything we have built in just 13 seconds.
