The award-winning Documentary 'A Thousand Cuts' by Ramona S. Diaz, is a film about Maria Ressa, the founder of the online news site Rappler, which 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, are organising a limited online screening of the film, and will be hosting an online regional forum titled “Press In Distress. Will independent journalism survive in Southeast Asia?” over the next few days. We find out more about both the film and forum from Anna Har, the co-founder & executive director of the Freedom Film Network, and we also speak to Ian Yee, the co-founder of The Fourth and an investigative journalist and producer with R.AGE.
