When the Storm Fades Trailer

"Beautiful, breathtaking, hilarious." 1091 Pictures has released a new US trailer for an indie docu-dramedy titled When the Storm Fades, a film by Canadian filmmaker Sean Devlin. This premiered in 2018 at the Vancouver Film Festival, and is only finally getting a release on VOD this year. The film tells the story of a well-intentioned, young Canadian couple who help a family in the Philippines recover from the 2013 Super Typhoon Haiyan. It stars real Typhoon Haiyan survivors re-enacting their experiences in the aftermath of the storm alongside Canadian comedians. Which sounds strange? But that's why filmmaking is a creative endeavor - always try to make something unique. Starring Ryan Beil as Jerry, and Kayla Lorette as Clare. I'm glad they openly admit that it's criticizing the "white savior" complex. Looks like a unique film indeed.

Here's the official US trailer (+ posters) for Sean Devlin's When the Storm Fades, direct from YouTube:
