Fun Video Day

27 Jun

It’s a lazy, hazy Saturday … completely braindead … and in search of mindless entertainment …

Here’s a video of how 1,500+ CPDRC inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center, Cebu, Philippines spend their days.  This isn’t the completed version and we do hope you enjoy the teaser.

And if your Saturday is as lazy as mine has been, thus far, here’s a 20 minute documentary of the prisoners at the maximum security prison of Cebu.  They are considered the most dangerous offenders in the Philippines … murderers, rapists, violent drug criminals … but because of the four hours they dedicate to dancing each day, their behaviour has been transformed.

“Previously, Cebu prison was a wretched place ruled by rival gangs. But when the warden introduced dance lessons, everything changed. ‘Everyone became friends’.  Now the prisoners spend most of the day practising new routines.”

Produced by SBS/Dateline

Sending you our wishes for a relaxing and humorous weekend!
