A conversation with Brillante Mendoza, part 2

[Part 1 is here.]

In which the Cannes-winning director answers more questions, among them:

1. What's his answer to charges that his movies traffic in “poverty porn”?

2. In what way is Kinatay a “commentary” on the old “massacre” films, as he has mentioned?

3. Has his Cannes triumph sunk in? How has it changed his life?

4. What does he think of the larger Filipino audience that has been resistant, so far, to his movies and his particular brand of filmmaking?
