The award-winning documentary A Thousand Cuts by Ramona S Diaz is a film about Maria Ressa, founder of the online news site Rappler and joint winner of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.

The film explores the conflicts between the press and the Filipino government under President Rodrigo Duterte.

The Freedom Film Network, under their ‘Bebaskan Filem. Merdekakan Minda Rakyat’ campaign, recently organised a limited online screening of the film and hosted an online regional forum titled “Press In Distress. Will independent journalism survive in Southeast Asia?”

BFM finds out more about both the film and forum from Anna Har, co-founder and executive director of the Freedom Film Network, and speaks to Ian Yee, co-founder of The Fourth and investigative journalist and producer with R.AGE.

Produced and presented by: Juliet Jacobs
