THE AWARD-WINNING
FRONTLINE PBS DOC

ON THE PRESIDENT’S ORDERS
DIRECTED BY JAMES JONES AND OLIVIER SARBIL

OPENS OCTOBER 4th at CINEMA VILLAGE and
OCTOBER 18 in LOS ANGELES at LAEMMLE MONICA

Last week, a breaking news story revealed that ON THE PRESIDENT’S ORDERS, directed by Olivier Sarbil and James Jones, which exposes the brutal police tactics helmed by President Rodrigo Duterte would be used against him by The International Criminal Court.

ON THE PRESIDENT’S ORDERS is a searing, on-the-ground look at President Rodrigo Duterte’s deadly campaign against drug dealers and suspected drug users in the Philippines, told with unprecedented access to police officials implicated in the killings, families of users, and others from both sides of the nation’s war on drugs.  This chilling new doc opens in theaters this Friday in New York at Cinema Village and in LA on October 18th at the Laemmle Monica Film Center.  This incredibly timely film cannot be missed this awards season.  Check out the gripping trailer here.

 

ON THE PRESIDENT’S ORDERS just took home the grand prize for best UK Feature at the Raindajnce Film Festival.  In this explosive cinematic investigation, directors Jones and Sarbil get alarmingly close to the battle for the streets and soul of the Philippines. Their cameras stand before both sides — the victimized slum communities and the police squads blithely executing their countrymen from a perverse moral high ground. The staggering visions of violence, shot with a kinetic slickness and immediacy, are so electrifying that viewers will have to remind themselves: this is happening now, this is real.
