The Best Film and other 4 Awards winner in the New Breed section (for the up-and-coming directors) at Cinemalaya 2011.


The Woman in the Septic Tank chronicles a day in the life of three ambitious, passionate but misguided filmmakers as they set out to do a quick pre-prod at Starbucks, a courtesy call to their lead actress, Eugene Domingo, and an ocular inspection of their film’s major location, a squatter’s area beside a dumpsite. They believe they have a winning script, the energy and the drive to make their dreams come true. Like most filmmakers they know, they have devised a screenplay that will show the real essence of our culture: poverty.
