From launching state operations against the poor to supporting the political comeback of the most heinous family in Philippine history, Mike de Leon shows us what Rodrigo Roa Duterte has come to be: a dictator.
Mike de Leon is one of the most respected directors and cinematographers in Philippine cinema. His films Batch '81 (1982) and Sister Stella L. (1984) have boldly shown the horrors of the Marcos regime during its time. Bothered by historical amnesia among Filipinos today, de Leon, through his latest film Citizen Jake (2018), reminded the current generation of the Martial Law era, and why events of today seem to prelude a history they will not want to repeat.
