BBC Storyville – On the President’s Orders (2019)

BBC Storyville 2019 On the Presidents Orders

The story of President Duterte’s bloody campaign against drug dealers and addicts in the Philippines, told with unprecedented and intimate access to those on both sides of the war – the Manila police, and an ordinary family from the Calocan slums.

Shot in the style of a thriller, this observational film combines the look and feel of a narrative feature film with a real-life 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.
