"Paraiso" is a direct cinema documentary film that follows the lives of child survivors one month after the tragedy of the strongest typhoon ever recorded on earth, Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. We will see their struggles as they live on and rebuild their lives in what was once their Paraiso, which is but a memory of tragedy and great loss.

This film won the Grand Prix at the 21st Cine Eco: International Festival of Environmental Cinema of Serra da Estrela, held in Portugal last Oct. 20. The award came with a cash prize of 2,000 euros (P105,000). Organizers described the documentary as a form of “direct cinema,” which “shows the lives of Filipinos, young and old alike, a month after supertyphoon ‘Yolanda,’ described as one of the strongest typhoons in the world, hit the country in 2013.
