In 2014, the Singapore Red Cross commissioned fourteen Diploma in Mass Communication (DMC) students to film a documentary about rebuilding efforts in Sri Lanka after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami.  

The students spent a week in early September 2014 travelling around the island nation, documenting how – or if – local communities in tsunami-affected areas managed to rebuild their lives after the disaster. 

The student documentary was featured at the “2004 Asian Tsunami: Ten Years On” photo exhibition, organised by the Singapore Red Cross. Held at the National Library from 15 to 30 December 2014, the exhibition commemorated the 10th anniversary of the natural disaster which also devastated several other countries, including Indonesia and Malaysia. 

The documentary was so well-received that it was also featured on Channel 8's Morning Express and SPH’s Shin Min Daily News.
