"Brother, what is this N-G-O?"
The mysterious islands of the Nicobars were severely hit by the Tsunami 2004. Along with many lives also their culture was almost lost.
The film "AFTERMATH -The Second Flood" tells the story of how this happened.
Over a period of seven years Raphael Barth has followed the fate of the Nicobarese in the wake of aid and development after the worst natural disaster of our times.
AFTERMATH is the story of young people from an ancient tribe who are suddenly driven into a new world by the Tsunami. Overwhelmed by history’s biggest wave of aid and development soon after, they are searching with humour and pride for their own, self- determined life in a globalized world. Instead of surrendering to the pressure of foreign aid- and development organisations, the Nicobarese face the challenges of finding sustainable ways into their future.
They create their own NGO and travel to the unknown world to search for allies.
