“Ilo Ilo” film wins at Cannes

 
 
The Philippine delegation to this year’s Cannes Film Festival are not exactly returning home empty-handed.
 
The crime thriller “On the Job,” starring Kapamilya stars Piolo Pascual and Gerald Anderson, will be shown in North America, after it was picked up by Well Go USA in Cannes, France. 
 

A film starring a Filipino actress won the prestigious Camera d'Or prize on Sunday.
 
The movie, which stars Yeo Yann Yann, Chen Tianwen, newcomer Koh Jia Ler and Filipino film and stage actress Angeli Bayani, tells the tale of a Singaporean family and their Filipina maid, who befriends the family's troubled son.
 
“Ilo Ilo” was one of two films starring Bayani that premiered at the prestigious film festival.
 
Bayani, whose past works include the award-winning indie film “Ka Oryang,” the stage musical “Caredivas” and the ABS-CBN series “Angelito: Batang Ama,” also appeared in “Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan” by acclaimed filmmaker Lav Diaz.
 
"The director's intelligence and sensitivity bring forth very important issues -- childhood, immigration, class struggles and the economic crisis," said the jury citation.
