Guys, I would like you to watch this film. It’s an interesting documentary about Paco Larrañaga, a 19-year-old student who was accused of kidnapping, raping and murdering sisters Marijoy and Jacqueline Chiong in Cebu on July 16, 1997. It shows the injustice in our country’s justice system and the ever-present corruption among officials and crooked cops.

One of the most riveting and relevant documentary features of our time—Give Up Tomorrow—by filmmakers Mike Collins and Marty Syjuco—has been screened in over 50 film festivals in more than 25 countries. It has won 15 major awards including 7 Audience Awards, 4 Human Rights Awards, and the Activism Award at Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival.
Give Up Tomorrow brings to light the circus that is the Philippine justice system, with corrupt officials, bad cops, and a hysterical media playing to an angry public out for vengeance.
But underneath it all is an intimate drama focused on the struggle of two angry, sorrowful mothers who have dedicated more than a decade to execute or save one innocent man.
