Whether the Weather is Fine

Carlo Francisco MANATAD Philippines, France, Singapore, Indonesia, Germany, Qatar 105 Min NC16 (Coarse Language) Southeast Asian Premiere

A numinous tale of environmental refugees seeking a new life serves a tragicomic take on humanity after a disaster.

Hearing about an impending storm in the wake of a deadly typhoon, Miguel looks for his missing mother and friend to escape on the next ship to Manila. Amidst the stony rubbish and strewn bodies in the wasteland they are fleeing, the trio begin to see their world grow increasingly absurd, magical and stupefying.
