Why you should watch ‘Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank’
Best Actress. Best Screenplay. Best Director. Best Film. Audience Choice. The movie “Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank” won all these awards at the 7th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival.
Those who have seen it aren’t surprised. Those who haven’t have been raring to. The screenings at Cinemalaya were packed and, earlier this week, many braved the storm just to watch “Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank” at UP.
Written by Chris Martinez (“Kimmy Dora”, “Here Comes The Bride”, “100”) and directed by Marlon Rivera, “Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank” is a mockumentary that parodies filmmakers’ penchant for poverty porn when attempting to make it in the international film festival circuit. Everyone’s beloved Eugene Domingo stars in the movie and does a parody of herself.
In this quick Q&A with Super, Chris and Eugene talk about the film, the feedback and why sometimes, sh*t happens.
