BEASTMODE, A SOCIAL EXPERIMENT
by Manuel Mesina III
Beastmode is a mockumentary that explores themes of violence and public manipulation by weaving together two timelines: the timeline of Rodrigo Duterte’s first two years as the Philippines’ first self-proclaimed Socialist President – from his bloody rise to power up to the historical twist during his second State of the Nation Address. Juxtaposed with this is the narrative of the cheeky social experiment which follows the antics of Filipino pop icons, Baron Geisler and Kiko Matos – from the viral bar fight, the media banter up to the highly publicised commercial fight.
The two timelines culminate and morph into one staged spectacle, effectively blurring the line between reality and fiction
