Event description

Description

Join Amnesty International and Campaign for Human Rights Philippines for a film showing of 'On The President's Orders', followed by a Q&A with co-director James Jones.

The searing story of President Duterte's bloody campaign against drug dealers and addicts in the Philippines, told with unprecedented and intimate access to both sides of the war - the Manila police, and an ordinary family from the slum.

Shot in the style of a thriller, this observational film combines the look and feel of a narrative feature film with a real life revelatory journalistic investigation into a campaign of killings.

The film uncovers a murky world where crime, drugs and politics meet in a deathly embrace - and reveal that although the police have been publicly ordered to stop extra-judicial killings, the deaths continue.



On The President’s Orders is a Frontline PBS and ARTE production in association with Mongoose Pictures, BBC Storyville and the DocSociety.
