2008.07.16 – Greg Pak moderates AAIFF Works-In-Progress program featuring “Give Up Tomorrow”

From the official announcement:

Award-winning filmmaker Greg Pak (ROBOT STORIES, AAIFF05) leads our annual WORK IN PROGRESS program guiding filmmakers through the process of molding an unfinished work into the final cut. This year, Pak will be leading a workshop featuring GIVE UP TOMORROW by directing team Marty Syjuco and Michael Collins.
On a stormy night in July 1997, two young girls waiting for a ride at a shopping mall disappear without a trace… Simultaneously a murder-mystery and an exposé of endemic corruption in the post-Marcos Philippines, GIVE UP TOMORROW centers on the trial of Paco Larrañaga, a young Mestizo (of Spanish descent) accused of killing two Chinese-Filipino sisters on the island of Cebu. Capturing how a rapacious media circus stoked ethnic and class hatred to prejudice public perception, the film reveals the extraordinary judicial violations that resulted in Paco’s death sentence. Secret filming from Paco’s cell exposes the appalling conditions of Filipino prisons, where thousands like him languish without fair trial. This story is intensely personal with far-reaching global implications: Paco’s case was eventually championed by international human rights groups, including the UN; their efforts eventually led to the abolishment of capital punishment in the Philippines, saving hundreds of inmates whose possible innocence may have been disregarded by flawed judicial and social systems.
A reception sponsored by Tribeca All Access will follow the screening.
*FREE and open to the public. For tickets, please RSVP to hospitality[at]asiancinevision[dot]org.
At Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick Street @ Laight Street.
WED JUL 16 630PM
