Some amazing news for Jericho Rosales: His movie Basurero was named Best Global Film at a New York film festival!
2019 short film Basurero was given the award at the 1st Auntyland Film Festival, "a community, volunteer-driven event devoted to short films by and for women and diverse communities." The movie falls under the film festival's Global, Environment, and Activism category.
Director Eileen Cabiling took to social media in June to announce the happy news.
"Brava @basurerofilm team for winning the Grand Jury Best Global Film @auntylandfilmfest in Tribeca, NYC," Eileen wrote in an IG post. "Many thanks to Auntyland Film Fest for the great honor and for screening our film at your fierce and poetic fest for women directors!"
In Basurero, Jericho plays a poor fisherman who accepts a job dumping murdered bodies.
Congrats to Jericho and the Basurero production team!
