Direk Eileen Cabiling will be discussing filmmaking and the creative process with New York Film Academy’s Creative Director Liz Hinlein — this Wednesday at 12 PM PST/3 PM ET with NYFA! Hope you can join us!
The 20/20 Series is a pop-up event that takes us into the homes, hubs, and workspaces of an array of dynamic creative visionaries to allow for relaxed, engaging conversations on craft, creation, and artistic vision.
Each conversation with a creative visionary features 20 minutes of discussion with a moderator and a 20 Q&A from YOU, the audience.
This event is open to the public, as a means of promoting global connection and creativity, a key mission of NYFA.
” ‘Trash’ is honest and direct work that, without any moralizing tint, nor narrative exaggerations seeks to lead the viewer to find the different realities that lie at the heart of a city that is kind and broad for the tourist but full of inequalities and injustices to their poorest, in an environment where survival is highest above any other human feeling.”
— Marrano de Marrano
Basurero is featured in Marrano de Marrano, a Columbian movie blog, and is showcased as one of the films to be screened digitally in the upcoming Vancouver Asian Film Festival 2020. The festival will be open on November 1 and will be screening until November 8, 2020.
The review was appreciative of the film’s take on the Philippine drug war without resorting to any moral dichotomization and pretensions in its account.
Yong Chavez interviewed Direk Eileen Cabiling with ABS-CBN Hollywood.
