A ball. A boat. A little girl's sandal. Filmmakers are working to find _ and tell _ the stories behind some of the items that have washed up on North American shores following the deadly 2011 tsunami in Japan.
The fallen Iraqi soldier's face is frozen in agony, his eyes and mouth wide open, his arms spread in surrender, his death in the Kuwaiti desert captured for posterity.
Eriksen said when his team first saw the boat, there was initial excitement, "because we had been watching the ocean for a few weeks, just wondering what's out there.
"They didn't lose it," he said in the clip. "It was taken from them by natural disaster, so I feel compelled to find that individual."
