Event description

Description

Please join Unicef’s Next Gen London for a special screening of critically acclaimed documentary On The President’s Orders followed by director James Jones in conversation with BBC reporter Catrin Nye.

All proceeds from this evening will go to Unicef’s Emergency Fund through Next Gen London.

On The President's Orders is 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.

“A powerful and disturbing documentary on the human cost of this senseless war, based on a crisis manufactured by a warped mind.” — THE INQUIRER

“Masterful foray into the dark side of human behaviour.” — DOCS ON SCREENS

“Shot with the stark precision and chiaroscuro tones of a Michael Mann film, James Jones and Olivier Sarbil’s On The President’s Orders would be one of the most harrowing escapist thrillers of the year if it weren’t for the somber realisation that the horror captured is entirely, apocalyptically real.”— POV MAGAZINE
