  • Description
  • The film records the devastation caused by the 2004 tsunami in the Maldives. The disaster affected 1,00,000 people – about one-third of the population – and damaged 4,000 houses. Interspersed with videos of the tsunami, the documentary reminds one about the capability of the disaster that set back the country by 20 years. It was only 6 days before the tsunami, that the United Nations had voted to promote the Maldives from the ‘least developed’ category. The film, a government production, lays down the ways by which that decision could be reclaimed.
