"Captures the state of journalism and democracy in the Philippines in all of its harrowing moments."--Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com

An essential character-driven document of a moment in the history of a country facing some challenges that are disturbingly familiar."--John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter

Nowhere is the worldwide erosion of democracy, fueled by social media disinformation campaigns, more starkly evident than in the authoritarian regime of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Journalist Maria Ressa places the tools of the free press—and her freedom—on the line in defense of truth and democracy. Produced, written and directed by Ramona S. Diaz (IMELDA, MOTHERLAND). In English and Tagalog with English subtitles. (Description courtesy of PBS)
