When the Storm Fades - DIFF CLOSING NIGHT

When the storm fades (Closing Night)

Directed by SEAN DEVLIN

CLOSING NIGHT | Australian Premiere

From Executive Producers The Yes Men, Mark Achbar (dir: The Corporation) and Naomi Klein. A genre-defying docudramedy starring a real Filipino family re-enacting their daily struggle to recover from the strongest storm in recorded history - 2013’s Typhoon Haiyan. Their journey intertwines with a pair of inept white saviours played by Canadian Comedy Award Winners Kayla Lorette and Aaron Read. The third feature film from Filipino-Canadian writer/director/comedian Sean Devlin is a prefigurative production that has improved the economic quality of life for the storm survivors that star in the film. This film was produced through crowdfunding combined with generous support from The Canada Council for the Arts and Telefilm Canada
