Typhoon Haiyan: A Story of Resilience in a Short Doc

Typhoon Haiyan, a short film by Janssen Powers, documents the aftermath of the super storm that in early November killed more than 6,000 people in the Philippine province of Leyte.

“Naturally, I intended to capture a story of destruction,” Powers wrote in the description of his work. “What I found however, was a story of resilience.”

In the documentary, images of the disaster alternate with interviews to the survivors, who talk about the tragedy and their look towards the future.
