This was a small school project for my rhetorical theory class. We take the ideas of Lloyd Bitzer and Richard Vatz and show how they problematize the global response to the tsunami.

Thank you to all the photographers and videographers whose footage I used, especially Brad Kremer's incredible coverage of the Saijo Matsuri festival.

Thanks group! You were great! We had a lot of fun. The completed version isn't perfect but I got papers to write!!!!
