Why you should watch â€˜Ang Babae Sa Septic Tankâ€™
Best Actress. Best Screenplay. Best Director. Best Film. Audience Choice. The movie â€œAng Babae Sa Septic Tankâ€ won all these awards at the 7th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival.
Those who have seen it arenâ€™t surprised. Those who havenâ€™t have been raring to. The screenings at Cinemalaya were packed and, earlier this week, many braved the storm just to watch â€œAng Babae Sa Septic Tankâ€ at UP.
Written by Chris Martinez (â€œKimmy Doraâ€, â€œHere Comes The Brideâ€, â€œ100â€) and directed by Marlon Rivera, â€œAng Babae Sa Septic Tankâ€ is a mockumentary that parodies filmmakersâ€™ penchant for poverty porn when attempting to make it in the international film festival circuit. Everyoneâ€™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.
