Janine Gutierrez, Rae Red headline Babae at Baril to compete at 2019 QCinema International Film Festival
A girl, a gun, and desperate times.
After being pushed to the edge most of her life, a girl discovers how much power owning a gun can give her and decides she’s had enough of being the underdog.
CIGNAL ENTERTAINMENT, in partnership with EPICMEDIA, present BABAE AT BARIL, an official entry to the QCinema International Film Festival.
Janine Gutierrez stars as a saleslady in a local department store. Her everyday life is composed of an exhausting commute home and a Manager who always seems to have something to say about her physical state. When she finally gets home, there’s no one there but her roommate who couldn’t care less about her.
All that is about to change when she finds a peculiar looking gun right on her doorstep. Her life instantly changes as she feels she can do anything she wants, talk back to whomever she wants, and even hurt anyone she wants.
The film stars Janine Gutierrez, Felix Roco, Elijah Canlas, JC Santos, and Sky Teotico with special participation of Ruby Ruiz, Allan Paule, and Archie Adamos and will be shown in selected cinemas from October 15 to 22, 2019.
Babae at Baril is director Rae Red’s sophomore feature and first solo directorial effort. The movie tackles how it is like to be a woman in a world of violence and masculinity.
Babae at Baril is one of the three recipients of production grants amounting to P1.5 million each from QCinema. The movie will be competing along with Glenn Barit’s The Cleaners and Arnel Barbarona’s Kaaway sa Sulod, and against entries from Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Laos, and China.
QCinema 2019 runs from October 13 to 22 and will be screening films at Gateway Mall, Ayala Trinoma, Robinsons Galleria, UPFI Cine Adarna, Cinema ’76 Anonas, and Cinema Centenario in Quezon City.
