But, as we found out in the days after the storm, numbers, adjectives, even images only go so far in describing what it means to wake up to your world completely rearranged. After the Storm, written as a letter to future disaster survivors, is not so much about the how and why of the tornado, but about that central question all of us face after living through something traumatic. Namely, how do we make sense of it all?


Andrew Beck Grace, Author After the Storm.

Borrowing techniques from an essay film, this web documentary tells the personal story of the director’s experience surviving a tornado and attempting to make sense of the aftermath. With support from the John D. and Catharine T. MacArthur Foundation, the project brought together PBS documentary series Independent Lens, digital agency Helios Design Labs and the Washington Post.
