“After the Tsunami” tells the story of Indonesian college graduate students who came to U.S. universities, most of whom went to the University of Arkansas and Texas A&M, on scholarships following the 2004 tsunami that killed 173,000 in Banda Aceh, Indonesia. The film follows graduates who are back home working in the fields of education, agriculture, government and business. One of the graduates runs an orphanage for children who lost their families in the tsunami. Former presidents George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton championed the program, intended to help rebuild the human capital in Aceh Provence. The film is written and produced by Larry Foley, and narrated in first person by one of the students, Clinton School of Public Service graduate Rina Meutia.
