Manila’s Prisons


L’effet Papillon, November 2007.

8 minutes, Michael Sztanke and Gaël Caron’s report.

12,000 prisoners, 15 guards, welcome to New Bilibit Prison, a self-managed prison in Manila. Here, prisoners are condemned to heavy sentences for murder, rape, or drug trafficking. Prison: a big village, where everything is managed by the prisoners themselves.
