Friday 1 March, 2024 6 p.m.

Directed by Filipino-Chinese-Irish Canadian comedian and filmmaker Seán Devlin Asog follows Jaya; a non-binary school teacher on a journey of self-discovery, starring survivors of the Yolanda typhoon in the Philippines.

Seán Devlin’s trans road movie spans fact, fiction and magic realism as it sees victims of the Yolanda typhoon play fictionalised versions of themselves, telling folktales of their real-life experiences. Asog charts TV Presenter and school teacher Jaya (Rey Aclao) and their former student Arlen (Arnel Pablo) as they join forces and embark on the trip of a lifetime, in a humorous and healing address of not only the Typhoon Haiyan disaster, but ideas of climate change, colonialism, and corporate greed.

Tagalog and Filipino with English subtitles.
