Typhoon Haiyan was one of the most devastating tropical cyclones ever recorded, claiming the lives of over 7,000 people and devastating the city of Tacloban in the Philippines. Filipino auteur Brillante Mendoza’s film Taklub begins on the first anniversary of the disaster in late 2014, following the lives of three surviving families in the city. Shot in a naturalistic style that echoes its subjects’ deprivation, the film sheds light on this natural disaster and its aftermath through a series of intertwining personal stories.
Snapshot Mon Amour (2015)
Directed by: Christian Bau
Runtime: 6 min
Country: Japan, Germany
The iconic Alain Renais film Hiroshima Mon Amour begins with a man and woman in bed talking. “I saw Hiroshima,” she says. “You saw nothing,” he replies. Disasters can have effects beyond visible destruction. In Japan, a filmmaker investigates the unforeseen linguistic fallout after the Fukushima catastrophe, where a new term appears in the Japanese language: Genpatsu-Rikon. Calligraphically, the word is composed of the characters for ‘atomic’ and ‘divorce’. In 2011, filmmaker Christian Bau travelled to the east coast of Japan and tried to find out more about the background for the creation of this word.
