"Danish photographer and feature writer Thorsten Overgaard traveled 12,000 miles throughout South East Asia after the tsunami, a virtual fly-on-the-wall, documenting the day-to-day lives of the Scientology Tsunami Relief Team.
"After The Tsunami presents in detail a behind-the-scenes look at relief work when everyday western people – from the a real estate agent from Germany to a student from Los Angeles – leave behind families, studies, careers and businesses to help strangers in crisis, whom they only know from media reports.
"It is a heartwarming story of the spiritual bonds between religions, ordinary western world people engaged in dangerous but important work that will change their lives forever and daily miracles. It is a story in pictures that is in a sharp contrast to the seemingly endless pictures of overwhelming devastation that played again and again on televised newscasts and on the front pages of the world for weeks and months.
"It is a story that brings hope to the world and shows how ordinary people can make a difference – that something can be done about it."
