My name is Mimi. I am Paco Larrañaga’s sister. Thank you so much for supporting “Give Up Tomorrow”.
I appreciate it more than you know.
We have been fighting this battle for justice for Paco for so long. Now with the documentary showing the truth of what happened 15 years ago, I hope that many more will join us fight for Paco, his co-accused and all the other innocents wrongfully convicted out there.
Right now Paco is still in prison in Spain. He is not out on parole. Since he has served 15 years of his sentence, he has been allowed on furloughs and leave, BUT he has to go back to jail after.
A few months ago, I went to see him when he was granted leave. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. It was heartbreaking to have to bring him back to prison, but we don’t take these mercies and miracles for granted.
Every night, while Paco sleeps in prison, I pray that one day soon he will be able to walk out of the prison for good—a free and vindicated man.
After doing the rounds of film festivals abroad and sponsored/private screenings in Metro Manila and Cebu, Give Up Tomorrow will be finally shown for a limited time in selected theaters.
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.
