Asia Society presents Film Screening: Whether the Weather is Fine
Devastated after the impact of Typhoon Haiyan in November 2013, the Filipino coastal city of Tacloban is largely reduced to rubble. Among those left standing in its wake are Miguel (Daniel Padilla), his mother (Charo Santos), and his friend Andrea (Rans Rifol). Food is in short supply. Rescue centers are overflowing with the injured. Everything is thrown into disarray and confusion. The three characters must decide whether to stay home or escape to Manila and leave their pasts behind.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Filipinx Artists of Houston and an outdoor reception.
