ASWANG will have its festival premiere in Canada at the Montreal International Documentary Festival from November 26 to December 2.
Taken from the name of a monster in Philippine folklore, the documentary follows the struggles of a journalist, a coroner, a missionary brother, and a street kid who suffers under a policy set by the Duterte regime. The Philippine police since then have killed tens of thousands of drug addicts.
