To Calm the Pig Inside (Ang Pagpakalma sa Unos)
To Calm the Pig Inside is a contemplation on the effects a typhoon leaves on a seaside city. Myths are woven in to try to understand how people cope with the devastation and trauma. A girl divulges fragments of her own memory of her grandmother and mother to tie in the experiences she felt visiting this ravaged port city. A patient and poetic film, To Calm the Pig Inside gives insight into the aftermaths of extreme weather events.
