A Cemetery full of Life Cebu's Graveyard Children

Dokumentary // ZDF / ARTE 2012, 45 mins, HD

The graveyards of the Philippine metropolis of Cebu are home to hundreds of families with children. At night they pitch their camps between the gravestones and sit down to cook, eat, and do their washing. It seems that the city has grown used to its graveyard denizens, who have been a familiar sight since the 1950s. The film shows the everyday life of the children who live and play among the graves and tells of their hopes and dreams for the future.

There is the possibility to support the people from the cemetery.
