'Aswang' to stream for free
MANILA, Philippines – Alyx Ayn Arumpac's award-winning documentary Aswang will be available to stream for free starting Saturday, July 11, 6 pm until Sunday, July 12, 11:59 pm.
The film, which tackles the first two years of President Rodrigo Duterte's war on drugs, was set for a Philippine premiere during the 6-day Daang Dokyu Festival in March 2020, which was postponed due to the pandemic.
Arumpac's in-depth documentary on the drug war follows the stories of victims from marginalized communities, exposing how their lives have changed during the so-called campaign against illegal drugs.
Newcomer Aswang bagged the international critics' FIPRESCI Award during the International Documentary Film Festival in 2019 in Amsterdam. – Rappler.com
