s6_0540In the Philippines, wives are always seen as the victims of separation. For filmmaker GB Sampedro, the time has come for Filipinos to understand that husbands too suffer in failed marriages.

To prove his point, Sampedro compiled a story of “six men with six failed marriages” into a single film fittingly titled Separados. The movie is an official entry to the New Breed Category of the 10th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival opening today at the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Pasay City.

“Dito kasi, kapag separation, lalaki ang may kasalanan, ang babae yong kawawa. With my movie, I want to show the other side of the story,” Sampedro, who is a bona fide “separado” himself, told The Manila Times in an exclusive interview.

erik_santos_s6_0541Asked if the story is in some ways personal, the director admitted, “Yes, it is very personal and close to me. Masasabi kong, majority ng emosyon dito galing sa akin. Most of the characters galing din sa akin.”

But why did it take him years to actually make this movie? Sampedro answered, “That time, feeling ko hindi pa siya buong-buo para sa akin. Hindi pa ako sold sa idea na ipapalabas ko yong ganitong klaseng istorya sa point of view ng lalaki. Hindi pa handa yung market para sa ganon.”

But now times are changing with more and more Filipinos dealing with marital issues.
