Several years after the strongest storm in history, the Pablos have rebuilt their seaside home in Tacloban, one of the Philippines' poorest neighbourhoods. Their slow recovery is shaken up by two awkward Canadian volunteers planting trees in the community. This white couple is learning the difference between helping and actually being helpful. Part comedic fiction, part documentary re-enactment - the result is a satirical examination of the white saviour complex and a quiet meditation on grief in the era of climate change. The third microbudget feature film from Filipino-Canadian director Sean Devlin, an artist arrested numerous times by the Canadian government for his creative interventions on climate change. When The Storm Fades is a prefigurative production that continues to improve the economic quality of life for the storm survivors that star in the film. Produced through crowdfunding and with the generous support of The Canada Council for the Arts and Telefilm Canada.
