New Documentary Film From Philippines on Wrongful Conviction Case…

The end of this trailer says, “The minute you forget about justice, anywhere in the world, that’s the beginning of the breakdown of society.”  The film is Give Up Tommorow, and you can see the powerful trailer here.  Word from those who have seen it is that it’s terrific.  Here’s the summary:

As a tropical storm beats down on the Philippine island of Cebu, two sisters leave work and never make it home…

GIVE UP TOMORROW exposes a Kafkaesque extravaganza populated by flamboyantly corrupt public officials, drug dealers, cops on the take, and a frenzied legal and media circus. It is also an intimate family drama focused on the near mythic struggle of two angry and sorrowful mothers who have dedicated more than a decade to executing or saving one young man, Paco Larrañaga.
