Devex, today reported that “The Humanitarian Leadership Academy has released a new 360 degree film, which immerses learners in the conflict-torn city of Marawi in the Philippines. 

Directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Lauren Anders Brown, “You Cannot Argue with a Flood” tells the story of Hanan, a young Filipino woman. When Hanan’s home city of Marawi is destroyed by terrorists, she becomes internally displaced, she then goes on to suffer the consequences of a major typhoon. In this inspirational story, Hanan eventually finds recovery through volunteering and providing psychosocial support to other internally displaced people in the city. 

“You Cannot Argue with a Flood” is now available both in English and Tagalog on the Humanitarian Leadership Academy’s YouTube channel, and has also been added to the volunteer essentials e-learning course on Kaya to help make the learning experience even more engaging and immersive.”
