Biniton is our entry for the Canadian Funded short film competition. We did the film November last year. My boyfriend Mc Robert Nacario directs Biniton. It is a story depicting the process of preparation and cooking of a dish called Biniton that is particular to the community of Saniag, Ampatuan. The process of cooking, in the eyes of an old woman, brings to life the hardships they experienced amidst armed conflict at the same time the process of preparation, through the experience of Amel, her grandson walks us through the current situation of their community. How amidst the hardships and diversity in culture they had all managed to bounce back and become united.

This film, along with six other short films from Mindanao, already had its World Premiere last December 6, 2007 7pm at Indie Sine, Robinson's Galleria, Ortigas Center in Pasig City. But the awarding will be held on March 25 this year at Cotabato City.
