On The President’s Orders – PREMIERE

Un film réalisé par James Jones et Olivier Sarbil

A FRONTLINE PBS and Arte production in association with Mongoose Pictures, BBC Storyville and Bertha DOC SOCIETY.

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.
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.

The documentary will be followed by an exchange with Olivier Sarbil
