The director’s cut of the new and daring movie Bayaw, starring Paolo Rivero [left] and Janvier Daily contains scenes where the lead actors walk around with dongs a-dangling. For instance, Janvier’s relatively large penis gets an extended shot in a bathroom scene. Paolo’s proud member finally gets the light of day, and it is not dark or purple, but pink and roseate. Now, the big question will be: will the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board [MTRCB] chop this movie into pieces because of the frontal nudity of the actors? Or will this government censors agency just allow the public exhibition sans any trouble? And then again, Bayaw is an exhibition entry at the 2009 Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival and Competition at the Cultural Center of the Philippines [CCP] next month. If I recall right, the University of the Philippines, embassies, National Commission for Culture and the Arts [NCCA] and the CCP are beyond the claws of the MTRCB. Hopefully then, we’ll get to see Bayaw in its entirety next month.
