THE PHILIPPINES, THE SPIRAL OF VIOLENCE
The Philippines have all the attributes of a tropical paradise, but it has become hell for drug dealers. Indeed, since his election in 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte has declared war on the gangs and drug trafficking. He has given a free rein to the police and the armed forces to shoot any suspect. This policy has amplified an already incredibly high level of violence in a country plagued by chronic poverty.
This film follows police raids and explore life in the Manilla slums as well as the relentless action of those trying to help the poorest among the poor, namely the street children.
