Using the ancient art of shadow puppetry, a young survivor narrates her community’s experience coping from the mental and physical suffering caused by fatal Super Typhoons that hit the Philippines in the past few years. Due to climate change and the rising sea temperature, typhoons are becoming frequent, stronger and deadlier. In the simplest and visually informative way, this short film reminds us of what the future holds and the urgency to act on the climate crisis.
