The Mortician of Manila
  • Year2019
  • Duration25 min

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, this film gives us a deeper understanding of Rodrigo Duterte’s presidency and war-on-drugs.
