Description
This documentary centers on the ensuing trial of Paco Larranaga, along with six other young men, accused of a murder case of two Filipino-Chinese girls. Filmmakers Michael Collins and Marty Syjuco probe the hostile delivery of justice and obstruction of truth brought about by an overly bureaucratic leadership, media sensationalism and racial profiling. It won several awards in various international festivals, including Best Documentary at the 2013 National Film Society and the Audience Award at the 2012 San Sebastián Human Rights Film Festival.
