On April 25th, 2015 an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude shook Nepal. Almost 9,000 people died, more than 22,000 people suffered injuries and more than half a million houses were destroyed.
At first, the world was interested and the media published a river of pictures showing the destruction but within weeks other stories took the headlines. Nepal vanished little by little from the news while the Nepali people continued their struggle, fighting as they did from day one, to help each other and rebuild out of the devastation. “Endurance,” tells their story.
"While organizing a charity event for Nepal, I went through thousands of different photos taken after the earthquake. Suddenly, quite by chance, I was struck by one image. Omar Havana, with one single shot, managed to capture the essence of that culture, wounded by the earthquake, rising from the ruins like Buddha with his ineffable smile. Omar’s photographs will enter the history of Nepal and his endurable love will be of tremendous support to the Nepalese people."
Bernardo Bertolucci. Italian Film Director of Little Buddha filmed in Bhaktapur, Nepal
