MANILA, Philippines -- The award-winning independent film "Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank" will be screened at the prestigious Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City from May 23 to 28.

The MoMA is considered the most influential museum of modern art in the world.

Directed by Marlon N. Rivera, "Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank" will be part of MoMa's "ContemporaAsian" exhibition, which will feature films "that get little exposure outside of their home countries or on the international festival circuit, but which engage the various styles, histories, and changes in Asian cinema."

"Ang Babae sa Septic Tank," which stars Eugene Domingo, is a comedy about three independent filmmakers who are planning to do a film about poverty in the Philippines.
