This is a short documentary about an individual who physically experienced typhoon Yolanda as it struck the Philippine Islands. While most of the villagers took shelter in the church, Rolando Albacite braved the winds to stay ashore in order to secure his fishing boats. This is a portrait of a brave and grounded man who stayed humble despite the losses of the enormous calamity.
Filmed on Bantayan Island in the Philippines, January 2014.
