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.

Screening will be followed by a discussion with Anna Morris of Reprieve and Faisal Saifee of Fair Trials Abroad.
