Anarchy in the Philippines is an intimate journey into the heart of the small but powerful DIY punk movement in modern day Philippines. It is a story of a group of punks who spend their time hitchhiking, begging for food, screen printing bootleg band t-shirts in their backyards, and helping vulnerable members of their community. What sets this youth subculture apart from other punks around the world is that they are living with the constant threat of President Duterte’s violent ‘War on Drugs’. For the characters in this film, choosing a punk lifestyle and going against the grain puts them in very real danger.
