Whether the Weather is Fine Kun maupay man it panahon

  Carlo Francisco Manatad

  Philippines, France, Singapore, Indonesia, Germany, Qatar     105 minutes


November 2013: Typhoon Haiyan has devastated the Filipino city of Tacloban, displacing most of its population. Young and resourceful Miguel must navigate the storm’s aftermath, along with his mother and friend Andrea. As they wander through the city in search of food, safety, and missing loved ones, order and reason disintegrate around them, but elements of fantasy—a beachside miracle, a rainbow with an unexpected gift, and a round of celestial karaoke—begin to shine through. Should they evacuate to Manila or remain and watch over the place they call home? Sterling cinematography and an infectious pop-infused soundtrack combine to paint a memorable picture of life at a crossroads.
