Doc/Fest 2019: On The President's Orders
From the archive
This film was last shown on 7 June 2019
Shot like a Hollywood thriller, this visceral exposé lays bare the deadly heart of darkness behind Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte's single-minded war on drugs. A powerful indictment focusing on the individuals caught up in the senseless crossfire, from a brutal, cross-carrying police chief to a whisky-sipping mortician patiently waiting for the next victim to arrive.
