the cemetery people



 

 

Over 6,000 people make their home among the tombs of Navotas Cemetery, located in the Philippines on the shores of Manila Bay. Serving as a trustworthy guide, the smiling and talkative Pastor Jon leads us through the unimaginable world of ‘The Cemetery People’, where families live, sleep and even play among the graves.
