In the remote countryside of Ilongo, various women are sexually abused by local men. Two sisters meet Simon, the most attractive man in the village, and fight over him–one constantly haunted by Catholic dogma because of the abuse she suffered previously.
In the tradition of Japanese Pink cinema comes this shocking, violent and sex-filled movie that caused an outrage when it was screened at the Chicago Film Festival. Starring the former Miss Philippines, the stunning Maria Isabel Lopez (in her most revealing role ever), SILIP – DAUGHTERS OF EVE is an eye-opening example of raw and savage filmmaking from one of the Philippines’ most innovative directors, Elwood Perez. Set in the beautiful and remote countryside of Ilongo, the story tells of three young women and their struggle to come to terms with their own sexuality against a background of religious oppression and male brutality.
