Direction & Editing: Kiri Dalena

Sound: Jippy Pascua

Two children living in Iligan on the Mindanao Island, the Philippines, survive a devastating hurricane that wrecks havoc on everybody's lives. Little by little, the siblings try to come to terms with the tragedy they have endured. This wonderfully crafted, dreamy film and its eerie sound design, capture the persisting sense of wonder of children, while they are recovering in the aftermath of loss and horror. (Giona Nazzaro)
