Award-winning Philippine director Brillante Mendoza publicly supports President Rodrigo Duterte and his drug war campaign.
While critics have condemned Duterte's anti-crime crackdown, Mendoza has filmed government advertisements promoting it and directed the broadcast of a presidential address to the nation.
"If there's one person who understands the situation, it's the president," Mendoza said.
"I know there are a lot of people who are not supportive in totality of what he wants and what he's doing right now, but if you actually have witnessed the real situation, this is the way to go about it." he added. [source]
