A Thousand Cuts

Dir. Ramona S. Diaz. 2020, 110 mins. Perhaps nowhere is the worldwide erosion of democracy more starkly evident than in the authoritarian regime of Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Philippines. Journalist Maria Ressa places the tools of the free press—and her own freedom—on the line in defense of truth and democracy in this documentary portrait of how social media disinformation campaigns have become the norm for national leaders desperate to stay in power at all costs.

“[An] engrossing, galvanising film. Ressa’s seemingly boundless energy, good humor and intelligence make her basically a power plant for the manufacture of inspiration in embattled times.” —Jessica Kiang, Variety.
