About the film
Beastmode : A Social Experiment
Release Date: August 11, 2018
|Director||:||Manuel Mesina III, Banuk Amante|
Beastmode interweaves what at first sight seem to be two unconnected storylines: the first two years of rule by President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines, notorious for his war against drugs, and the reconstruction of a social and artistic experiment about violence and performance—a sort of Fight Club 2.0.
