Ríndete Mañana gana el Premio del Público en San Sebastián Festival de Cine y Derechos Humanos. Give Up Tomorrow wins the audience award at the San Sebastian Human Rights Film Festival. Paco Larrañaga was given a pass from prison for a few days so he could attend the screening and awards ceremony.
Hubert Webb is the last to speak after the Philippines premiere of Give Up Tomorrow at Cinemalaya Film Festival on July 22, 2012. "The best defense we have for injustice is making people aware of what's really happening..." On December 14, 2010, Webb was acquitted by the Supreme Court of all charges after fifteen years and four months of imprisonment upon finding that the prosecution failed to prove that the accused are guilty beyond reasonable doubt.
ABS-CBN interview Michael and Marty at the International Asian American Film Festival in San Francisco about how the project began, challenges along the way, and lessons learned.
No prosecution witness came forward until several months after the crime. According to the prosecuting attorney Teresita Galanida, it was only once they were haunted by the ghosts of the missing girls. Or was it the reward money? Former NBI Director Villarin, who was the first one to investigate the case, reveals the shocking truth about what he learned when he first interviewed these witnesses, including the co-worker of Jackie Chiong, Sheila Singson.
Give Up Tomorrow was broadcast on PBS as part of the award winning series POV during their 25th Anniversary Season.
So my dog and I are setting off for Spain to trek the Camino de Santiago for Paco. We will walk 356 miles (573km), which is the exact distance that Paco Larrañaga was from the scene of the alleged crime on the 16th July 1997. The trek should take about 30 days. Paco has served nearly 15 years in prisons in both the Philippines and Spain for a crime he had no part in.
