Inside the Tsunami

50' (ENG, GER, JAP)

What happened in Japan, on March 11th, when the coast was hit by a giant tsunami?

Let’s go back in time, when a tsunami, caused by an earthquake, took the lives of over 1,000 people. Based on the personal accounts of the survivors of this enormous tidal wave, the program analyzes the behaviour and mechanics of the tsunami. By utilizing harrowing home-video footages, Hollywood-style CGI with the use of a supercomputer, attempts will be made to recreate the tsunami, thereby enabling viewers to experience firsthand what these people went through.
