Asienne features Basurero for Filipino-American History Month
Asienne featured Basurero as part of its Filipino-American History Month special. Edrianne Wood, Film Reporter, interviewed Direk Eileen Cabiling for this feature.
Edrianne was all praises for Basurero, particularly in the way it was able to incorporate social issues alongside the inner conflict experienced by Bong, an urban fisherman, the main character in the film. She also loved how the cinematography was able to show the nuances of the character’s dynamics, and on how Eileen was able to put so much into the story for a movie that ran for just fifteen minutes.
