Manila High Trailer (2017)


manila High - life in company with death (2017)

This short documentary [12 min] was co-directed with Simone Gottschau. It follows a group of young caretakers in one of Manilas public cemeteries. It's where they work, it's where they live, caring for the dead. President Duterte's war on drugs has kept them busy - but the caretakers can't help asking themselves: who will be next to end up in the graves?
