Acclaimed director Mike de Leon has released a short film titled “Kangkungan” that reportedly summed up the three years of President Rodrigo Duterte’s presidency.

In the said five-minute short film, the president is accused of what De Leon described as “unforgivable crime” “Ang suportahan ang pagbabalik sa kapangyarihan ng walang konsyensyang Pamilya Marcos." 

The short film is titled: Itinatapon na ang Pilipinas sa Kangkungan: A video by Mike De Leon

On its caption, it says: “Rodrigo Roa Duterte: A Portrait of the Dictator as Filipino (with apologies to Nick Joaquin).” This references the play, A Portrait of an Artist as Filipino, written by National Artist for Literature Nick Joaquin.

The video is a compilation of the controversies that the president got involved into since he started campaigning until he assumed to power.

Meanwhile, Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said the short film of De Leon was based on his “wrong perception” of the current administration.

“Well, it’s his right to speak. We recognize that as a right. But, we will refute his allegations,” quoting what Panelo said to Politiko.

De Leon has been an outspoken critic of the Marcoses and of the current administration under President Duterte.
