Film Screening followed by Q&A with Director Lav Diaz

The Philippines is the most storm-battered country in the world. In 2013, Typhoon Yolanda, considered the strongest storm in history, struck the Philippines, leaving in its path apocalyptic devastation. A few months later, Lav Diaz visited Tacloban Island to film children lives in the aftermath.

With striking black & white photography, this critically-acclaimed observational documentary follows three children as they cope with the disaster—scavenging for food, telling stories, playing amid looming ships run aground on the town’s main street, and diving from others that still sit in the sea—is a moving reflection on climate change and human resilience.
