Bianca

Philippines, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Documentary)

Director: Grace Amilbangsa

In this, her first film, noted Philippine actress, Grace Amilbangsa, displays a sensitive approach to a potentially sensational subject and an impressive command of expressive film language. In a seductive atmosphere of claus­trophobic intimacy and slow-burning menace, she unfolds a tale of incest behind the closed doors of the nuclear family home.
