The epicenter of Tuesday’s catastrophic earthquake in Haiti was located halfway between the capital city of Port-au-Prince and the port city of Jacmel, 25 miles away, on the southern coast of the country. The city was heavily damaged in the quake but the extent of the loss of life or destruction is not yet known.

Film students at the the Cine Institute, located in Jacmel, are filing reports and posting them to Vimeo. See their work here
