BEASTMODE, A SOCIAL EXPERIMENT
Manuel Ill Mesina & Banuk Amante / Philippines / 2018 / 90 ‘ / English – Filipino / S.T. English

BEASTMODE, A SOCIAL EXPERIMENT is an explosive critical-creative exploration of pop culture, violent spectacle and fascist politics in the Philippines. It interweaves what at first sight seem to be two unconnected storylines: the first two years of rule by President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines, notorious for his war against drugs, and the reconstruction of a social and artistic experiment about violence and performance—a sort of Fight Club 2.0.

THE MORTICIAN OF MANILA
Leah Borromeo / Philippines – United Kingdom / 2019 / 26 ‘ / Tagalog / S.T. English

Orly Fernandez manages and lives at Eusebio’s – a 24-hr funeral parlour in Manila. His relationships with clients and the journalists he meets daily colour the empathy and contempt he holds for drug war victims who, like him, are struggling to survive. With intimate access, THE MORTICIAN OF MANILA deftly captures some of the devastation caused by Duterte’s so-called war on drugs in the Philippines.
