Wherever I am, the world comes after me.
It offers me its busyness. It does not believe that I do not want it.
Now I understand 
why the old poets of China went so far
and high 
into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.
"The Old Poets of China" by Mary Oliver

About the Documentary

In June 2010, Benjamin Bayles was killed in Negros Island in a setup which is typical of extrajudicial killings (EJKs). However, this case differs from others. The police apprehended the suspects who now face trial; and the military background of the accused was established. Sin Dudas takes different perspectives on the backdrops of extra‑legal, but yet state violence. The documentary, “Sin Dudas” (Walang Alinlangan) draws on extensive interviews with victims, witnesses, human rights defenders, politicians, media people, the police and key persons in various government agencies.

About the Production Staff
