Description

The stories of hardship and hope in the wake of Super Typhoon Yolanda are brought to life in Brillante Mendoza’s vivid dramatization. Set in a post-typhoon shantytown, Taklub takes an intimate look at the psychological reverberations of the disaster, slowly revealed in its characters—Bebeth, who searches tirelessly for any information or clues to her missing children; Larry, who dedicates his life to religion after losing his wife; Erwin and his brother and sister, who lost their parents; and Renato, who lost his entire family to a fire in the unsafe living conditions after the typhoon.


Press

"The film puts the consequences of devastation and the sluggish pace of reconstruction all up on the screen, and they speak for themselves." - Variety
