    Default Film on Paco Larraņaga's conviction wins at Tribeca film fest


    MANILA, Philippines - "Give Up Tomorrow," a documentary feature film about the case of Paco Larraņaga who was convicted for the 1997 murder of Chiong sisters in Cebu, has bagged the Heineken Audience Award at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.

    Director Michael Collins took home $25,000, according to the festival's official website.

    The second place went to "Semper Fi: Always Faithful," while "Carol Channing: Larger Than Life" placed third.

    Larraņaga and other scions of rich families in Cebu were convicted for the kidnapping, murder and rape of Marijoy and Jacqueline Chiong in Cebu. The Supreme Court imposed the death sentence on all but one of the convicts. Their sentences were commuted to life imprisonment after President Arroyo abolished the death penalty.

    In 2009, Larraņaga, a Filipino-Spanish citizen, was transferred to the Spanish government where he is serving the rest of his term.

    "Give Up Tomorrow" points to a number of holes in his conviction and suggests widespread corruption in the Philippines. -With a report from Reuters.

    This documentary is ridiculous. Yes, our justice system has a lot of loop holes but one thing remains true - they are guilty..

    I find this very surprising bai. How can rich kids rule over a place run by bad elements? Kung tinuod na imo sulti bai di ba kaha ni mabirahan sa mga taga private nalang daan?

    Hell, one can get shot randomly in these parts (as what happened on that sunny day in front of harrison park).

    So tell me bai, how did these kids get away with it if kamo ang hawd ana na area? Who was backing them up? hmm....
