FROM THE MOUNTAIN THUNDER
The story of the environmental catastrophe that struck the area between Friuli and Veneto in Italy.
At 22.39 on 9 October 1963, millions of cubic metres of rock slid into the artificial lake created by the Vajont dam, causing a mega tsunami and completely destroying entire villages and burying nearly 2000 people under a sea of mud.
Financial interests had gotten the better of common sense and no one had spoken out. Except for a single, lone voice that had tried to break the silence. A powerful, untarnished voice, as indomitable as the mountain itself.
* A tale of strife, courage and anger, at the foot of a mountain which watches and observes, but will not forgive.
* The story of Tina Merlin.
