The preview for a feature documentary on Christchurch's deadly February earthquake has been released.

When A City Falls is an in-depth look at the lives of people and how they cope in the aftermath of the February 22 quake, which killed 182 people.

The film, directed by Gerard Smyth, is set to premiere at Reading Cinemas at The Palms mall on November 16.

The premiere will double as the cinema's' official reopening.

It has been closed since the devastating quake.

Production of the documentary started after last year's September 4 earthquake and was nearly complete when this year's quake hit.

Frank Film producer Alice Shannon, who worked on the documentary, told media it was "a poignant look" at people's response to one of the country's worst natural disasters.

"[It] is a story about Christchurch's people and how they survived and coped following the earthquake. At times the film captures very raw emotions and I have no doubt many people will find it moving.

"But we also aimed to show how the human spirit has triumphed over terrible adversity, and I'm sure people will walk away, having seen the film, with a sense of hope for the future of our city."

The film was produced with grants from New Zealand Film Commission and NZ On Air.

It opens in cinemas nationwide on November 24.
