Another try with Lav Diaz.
His first movie I like!
This documentary shows very well how people deal very pragmatic with the aftermath of a Taifun. They just go on with their lives.
The recordings are impressing in their simplicity. The atmosphere is really special.
The sound fit to my experiences from the Philippines: The neverending traffic noise in Manila. Nerve wrecking! Then, outside the city the neverending crowing of the roosters.
The most fascinating scenes are the ones with the big stranded ships and around the huts of the people doing their daily chores.
All in all, the sight of the children looking for something usefull in the garbage aren´t so much different from the recordings of the Slum-children of "Khavn"s "Squatterpunk" who normally live on mountains of garbage. I would recommend both movies in a double feature.
