Watch on Big Screen: Ang Babae sa Septic Tank

Press Release
This August, Star Cinema will be offering movies that overflow with realism and laughter at the same time!

Produced by Quantum Films, Martinez-Rivera Films and Straight Shooters Media Ang Babae sa Septic Tank stars Eugene Domingo Who won the Best Actress at the 7th Cinemalaya International Film Festival!  This comedy-cum-parody which pokes fun over independent film-making won five major awards (five Balanghay Trophies) last July 24 at the CCP.  Aside from the Domingo's Best Actress, it also brought home Best Director for Marlon Rivera, Best Screenplay for Chris Martinez (who directed the blockbuster Here Comes the Bride and scriptwriter of Kimmy Dora), Audience Choice Award and the much-coveted Best Film Award.  Ang Babae sa Septic Tank also stars Cai Cortez (My Amnesia Girl, Maximus and Minimus) JM de Guzman (Mula Sa Puso, My Amnesia Girl) and Kean Cipriano (Calalily's lead vocalist).

In her thank you speech, Domingo or as close peers call her 'Uge', acknowledged the entire Cinemalaya team, her co-actors for the very pleasant surprise "napaka-ganding birthday gift ito!"

Ang Babae sa Septic Tank is a comedy that traces where ambitions sometimes lead to.  It chronicles a day in the life of a trio of misguided film-makers when they decided to produce a movie they assure has a caliber to earn... an Oscar. (Yes!  An Oscar!) In short Ang Babae sa Septic Tank becomes a laugh trip art of romanticizing a certain reality in Pinoy culture - here its poverty - that may be minimized but could never be eliminated.

Ang Babae sa Septic Tank is one of the many blockbusters of Eugene Domingo where her talent is always on display but with different dimensions and shades - and thus reflect her versatility at characterizations.  May she be playing leads or support roles.  Ang Babae sa Septic Tank is another testimony to Uge's on-screen comedic power.

Touted as the biggest blockbuster in Cinemalaya history of sold-out screenings, Ang Babae sa Septic Tank will be seen by more people as it opens in over 40 theaters nationwide on August 3!
