TAXI FILIPPINO

Bart De Bock // 2009

 

'Taxi Filippino' tells the story of a road trip through the Cordillera, a mountain region in the North of the Philippines.

From the summer capital Baguio to the province of Kalinga, the taxi passes by slums, schools and mining companies, mountain villages and military camps.

Corruption is everywhere. More than thousand people fell victim to political assassination under the regime of president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

Hundreds of others disappeared. And still the Filippinos have the courage to go on.
