Anarchy in the Philippines

Anarchy in the Philippines

Filmmaker and visual artist Jess Kohl captures a look at Manila’s radical DIY scene, a punk response to Rodrigo Duterte’s violent rule

Watch the Dazed doc exploring the war on drugs in the Philippines through the eyes of young rebel punks – an underground community living on the outskirts of a society where looking different is a courageous act.

We deeply regret that somewhere between the final edit and upload of the film a typo occurred on one of the contextual cards creating the impression that 13,000 people have been killed since January 2018. In fact reports on Duterte’s ‘war on drugs’ state the overall death toll since June 2016 varies in number between 20,000 and 12,000. We’re sincerely sorry for any offence this may have caused.
