Umaasa ang mga producer ng pelikulang “Still Human” na magkaroon sila ng widespread theatrical release sa Pilipinas pagkatapos nitong mag-premiere sa Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival.
Ang “Still Human” ay kuwento ng isang Pinay domestic worker at ang naging relasyon niya sa isang disabled employer. Pinagbidahan ito ng veteran Hong Kong actor na si Anthony Wong at ng theater actress na si Crisel Consunji.
Mula ito sa direksyon ni Oliver Siu-kuen.
“Our director said that she was inspired to do the film after seeing a man in a wheelchair and a lady who she presumed was his caregiver on the street.
And she started wondering about the dynamics of their relationship and why they looked so close. And then she started criticizing herself for even questioning how this kind of relationship can exist.
“I had several occasions in the post-screening discussions where there were people who would stand up and cry and say that this film made them remember their yayas,” sey ni Ms. Consunji.
Nanalo ang “Still Human” ng Best New Director, Actor, and New Performer Awards sa 38th Hong Kong International Film Festival. First time na isang Filipino actress (Crisel Consunji) ang ma-nominate sa naturang film festival at nanalo pa ito.
Pinalabas din ang “Still Human” sa Udine Far East Film Festival kunsaan nanalo ito ng Black Dragon Critic’s Award and the Top Audience Award.
Nanalo naman ng Golden Mulberry Award for Outstanding Achievement si Anthony Wong.
Ipapalabas din ang “Still Human” sa Chicago, Malaysia, Taiwan at Japan.
