Synopsis


C’est l’histoire d’un frère et d’une soeur de onze et huit ans, survivants d’un cyclone meurtrier à Iligan sur l’île de Mindanao en décembre 2011.

Tënk's opinion


"This stunning film is a poetic essay about two Filipino children shown dreaming, drawing, keeping watch, discussing, playing and falling asleep … before we realize they are survivors of a cyclone, who must have braved the waters to stay alive, and who must now live without their lost parents. The visual, sound and musical composition brings us up so close we feel like guardian spirits watching over their childhood and lost innocence, which they win back one day at a time, night after night."
