Aswang (2019 film)
Aswang is a 2019 documentary film directed by Alyx Ayn Arumpac. The film traces two years of Rodrigo Duterte's brutal war against drugs in the Philippines, which saw the murder of thousands of Filipinos in street executions and police operations. Aswang follows a group of people whose lives have been caught up in these events: a journalist who tries to make a stand against lawlessness, a coroner, a missionary brother who comforts bereaved family members, and a street kid with parents in prison and friends in the cemetery.
The film is a co-production between Cinematografica Films (Philippines), Les Films de l'œil sauvage (France), Straydog Productions (Norway), and Razor Film Produktion (Germany).
