AWARD RECIPIENT: Ed Ou and Aurora Almendral

AWARD RECIPIENT AFFILIATION: NBC Left Field

AWARD HONORED WORK: “The Kill List: The Brutal Drug War in the Philippines”

AWARD SPONSOR: David A. Andelman and Pamela Title

“The Kill List” is a personal and riveting behind-the-scenes insight into the Philippines drug war as seen through the eyes of people involved. The viewer is taken on a journey by hunters and the hunted. The quest by the police to rid the streets of drug users results in the hunted left lifeless. We are taken inside a morgue where a young man is asked to identify a body. He pulls back the sheet and sees the corpse of his father. The moment is raw and emotional. Visible are the bullet wounds and the cuff marks on his wrists. Ed Ou’s spell-binding camerawork is strikingly powerful. Kudos to the video team for taking a back seat and letting the characters and the visuals own this powerful story.
