Diaz’s ‘Yolanda’ docu NY premiere at MoMA
Lav Diaz’s “Yolanda” documentary “Storm Children (Mga Anak ng Unos), Book One” makes its New York premiere this month. Diaz’s latest work is part of this year’s Documentary Fortnight: MoMA’s International Festival of Nonfiction Film and Media, Feb. 13 to 27, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
The fest is an “annual showcase of films that examine the relationship between contemporary art and nonfiction practices and reflect on new areas of docu filmmaking.”
The MoMA website describes the film about three kids displaced by Supertyphoon Yolanda as “a moving reflection on climate change and human resilience.” Screenings are on Feb. 14 (7:15 p.m. at Theater 1) and Feb. 16 (7 p.m. at Theater 2). Bayani San Diego Jr.
