After the Tsunami tells the story of Indonesian college graduate students who came to U S universities on scholarships following the 2004 tsunami that killed 173,000 in Banda Aceh. Former presidents Bill Clinton and George H W Bush championed the program, intended to help rebuild the human capital in Aceh Provence.
Approximately 75 students participated, and most obtained advanced degrees from the University of Arkansas and Texas A&M. They are now back in Banda Aceh, working in jobs ranging from government, private business, education and agriculture.
The documentary was filmed in Arkansas, Texas and Indonesia.
