History haunts the modern-day Philippines, as the tyrannical rule of President Rodrigo Duterte and brutal policing methods recall the country’s murderous 1970s Marcos regime. Authors Gina Apostol and Eric Gamalinda and journalist Sheila Coronel reflect on the current state of the Philippines—and its global ramifications—and share their insights with moderator Sabina Murray.
Co-presented with Poets House
