On The President’s Orders Documentary at Bertha DocHouse

Dir: James Jones & Olivier Sarbil
United Kingdom / France / 2019 / 72mins

This 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.

Shot in the style of a Hollywood 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.

Gangster youths move through smoky nightclubs, armed police patrol in skull masks, and a solitary mortician waits in his warehouse for his next victim.

On The President’s Orders uncovers a murky world where crime, drugs and politics collide – and reveals a sinister truth about the nature of the ongoing slaughter on the streets of Manila.

Housewife – A Short Film

Housewife is a short film in development by Curtis McMullan, a film student at Greenwich University in London. Based on his mother’s experiences, it tells the story a housewife who sells Tupperware to gain independence from a controlling husband.

Curtis ran a crowdfunding campaign in January 2017 to make a film for his final year project and was fully funded on February 5, 2017. The production is looking for a Filipina actress (someone in their 30s) to play the mother in the lead role.

Human Rights Watch Film Festival: The Apology

The Apology is a film aiming to start discussion about Filipino women who were sexually exploited during WWII. It is showing at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival between 6th-17th March at the Barbican and Picturehouse Central.

“We are travelling all over to create a peaceful world. Not just for Korea and Japan, but for the world.” – Grandma Gil in film THE APOLOGY. History calls to them ‘comfort women’ but to many they are ‘the grandmothers’, a courageous group of women who refuse to let the Japanese government get away with the horrific crimes they committed against women in World War II. Their stories will inspire you, and challenge us all to ensure that history does not repeat itself. See THE APOLOGY @HumanRightsWatch Film Festival. 15/3 at the @BarbicanCentre & 16/3 at @PicturehouseCentral | #HRWFFLDN |
