Tsunami Cinema


This 2012 movie details the 2004 Southeast Asia tsunami from the point of view of a family who were on holiday during the event.   The rating is PG-13 so it may not be appropriate for young students but high school students could appreciate the story.   Using movies can be a great hook for students and make a subject seem more real to them.   The casualty numbers from this event were so staggering that the movies focus on one family and the human connections can help students put faces to events like this.
