Charo Santos-Concio’s new movie, “Whether the Weather is Fine” is set to premiere in North America at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
The news was shared by Dreamscape on its official Instagram account on 29 July, writing, “We’re thrilled to announce that “Kun Maupay Man It Panahon” (Whether The Weather Is Fine) is heading to Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) for its North American Premiere under the Contemporary World Cinema programme.”
The said movie, which co-stars Daniel Padilla, revolves around a mother and son, who – following the aftermath of Super Typhoon Yolanda – struggle for survival and deal with “the absurdity of fate, sustained by the hope that they carry, and what is lost and gained”. The film follows their struggles as they deal with destruction, loss, and the struggle to find a home after the storm.
Directed by Carlo Francisco Manatad, the movie was previously revealed to have been selected for competition at the 74th Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland, and to make its world premiere at the festival’s Filmmakers of the Present Competition in August.
TIFF will be running from 9 to 18 September.
