Palu: A Month After
Palu: A Month After: Double Blow Of Disaster
Palu is hit by a double blow of disaster. Channel NewsAsia's documentary filmmakers profile survivors and rescuers facing the greatest test of human resilience.
A double blow of disaster leaves the island of Palu in devastation and disarray. In a span of one month, Channel NewsAsia’s documentary filmmakers meet survivors coping with the enormous aftermath - losing livelihoods, homes and loved ones. We meet brave individuals - an air traffic controller with a comrade killed in the line of duty, a shopowner placing solar panels on survivors' homes, parents with children swept away by the tsunami and other desperate townsfolk struggling to salvage whatever pieces remain of their lives. Volunteer rescuers step in from all across Indonesia, drawn to the plight of their countrymen. Aftershocks continue as the islanders face the greatest test of human resilience.
