Koastal Media Distribution is pleased to announce the launch of a new film by Timmy Turner called ‘The Tsunami Diaries – A Voyage to the Epicenter’. The Tsunami Diaries is the inspiring true story of two best friends who strike out on a quest to document the destruction of the tsunami in Indonesia.
When pro surfer Timmy Turner and photographer Dustin Humphrey’s pursuit hits a roadblock they hatch a plan to carry out a relief mission of their own. They acquire a boat, The Mikumba, and set sail to the damaged corners of the Indian Ocean.
Timmy brings food, medical supplies, and a few goats to the neglected remote islands of Northern Sumatra. Recruiting people along the way, including Timmy’s Mom, Bill Sharp and Matt George, they form a motley crew of surfers, surf journalists, and doctors to confront dangerous obstacles around every turn. This is a story of tremendous courage and a testimony to the universal spirit of people helping one another.
The Tsunami Diaries will be available in late May on DVD and includes a never before released secret movie Just Dreaming (with Timmy Turner, Brett Schwartz, Kris Kamacho and friends surviving the SARS epidemic and near starvation on a boat quest for barrels), a Timmy Turner Filmography, as well as the preview of Timmy’s new project Cold Thoughts. A portion of all proceeds from this film will be donated to the villages documented in this film.
“Indonesia has been so good to me – I had to give something back. It’s all about people helping other people out,” said Timmy Turner.
Timmy is now taking this 50 minute documentary on a tour with screenings and question and answer sessions with himself and director Kristian McCue. To find out more about this inspiring new film and to see the trailer please go to the website: www.tsunamidiariesmovie.com
This film is proudly supported by Surfline where you can see the trailer and exclusive behind the scenes clips as the tour unfolds. The Tsunami Diaries will be distributed exclusively in North America by Koastal Media Distribution.
