    The DocYard Presents: Give Up Tomorrow

    Presented by at The Brattle Theatre

    August 27, 2012


    The DocYard Presents: Give Up Tomorrow

    Director Marty Syjuco in Attendance!

    95 min, USA / UK, 2011
    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, 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.

    Give Up Tomorrow is the winner of many awards around the globe, including:

    • Audience Award, 2011 Tribeca Film Festival
    • Audience Award, 2011 Sheffield Doc / Fest
    • Audience Award, 2012 Movies That Matter Festival
    • Activist Award, 2011 Traverse City Film Festival
    • Human Rights Award, 2012 Docs Barcelona Film Festival
    • Human Rights Award, 2012 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival

    The screening will be preceded by an episode from Alex Jablonski’s SPARROW SONGS, a project in which the filmmaker Alex Jablonski and cinematographer Michael Totten made and exhibited one short documentary per month, every month for one year.
