“Ang dagat na walang mahuli, ay isang palengkeng walang isda. Katulad ng pitakang walang pera….”
PHILIPPINE PREMIERE at CINEMALAYA 2020 - Aug 7-16, Digital Edition
'BASURERO' is about Bong, a Filipino fisherman, working in an urban fishing village on the outskirts of Manila.
Desperate for cash, Bong dumps bodies into the ocean for the drug war’s faceless vigilantes. The story follows Bong after he disposes of the “trash." He wrestles with guilt and tension rises when the killings’ hit close to home after he discovers his neighbor has been murdered for selling shabu (crystal meth). We are excited about our upcoming Philippine Premiere at the 2020 Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival, which will run on August 7 to 16. #EileenOngCabiling #filmscore #teresabarrozo #jerichorosales #cinemalaya #Basurero
