Brillante Ma. Mendoza, 2009 Cannes best director for “Kinatay” and the man responsible for Jaclyn Jose’s 2016 Cannes best actress win for “Ma’ Rosa,” explains how he responds to criticism that he indulges in poverty porn. “I don’t respond to them. As long as you know why you are making films, you have nothing to worry about. What’s important is that you make films because you want change, because you care for your country.” Will he ever make films about the wealthy? “I am not rich. I don’t know them. I am not familiar with their stories.” Bayani San Diego Jr.
