Episode 23 Benjamin: Living with the dead

 

I pass by Manila South Cemetery for many years and I always wonder what is happening Inside, Every body in Manila knows that people live there, but how is it to share your bed with a grave? How did they arrive there and what are they hoping for? One day our team went to the gate and asked guard if it was ok to go around, we were most welcomed to visit the place and during the visit, we met Benjamin at a corner. I had a good feeling about him right away and he was happy to share his story and to introduce us his family and friends who live in there as well. We wanted to know for how long he was there and his answer was straight, I was born here and I’m 50 years old! We then knew that he is the next one for Tronche de Vie to shoot.
