Hi there,

 

We are Stéph, Andrew and Nicole and we are part of the BRITDOC team. BRITDOC help great social documentaries get made. We're a film funder and a media think tank.

 

For the last few years, we’ve had the huge honour and privilege to work together with the lovely filmmakers Marty & Michael on their film Give Up Tomorrow and the associated campaign #FreePacoNow.

 

Paco Larrañaga was just 19 when he was arrested for a double murder he cannot possibly have committed. Thirty-five witnesses placed him at college 350 miles away from the scene, yet this evidence was ignored. After 17 years in prison, we say enough is enough.

 

THE PLAN

 

On Saturday 20th September, we’ll take part in the Color Run in Brighton and run 5k to raise money for Paco’s campaign.

 

Help us fight to correct this injustice. Donate now! To find out what else you can do go to www.freepaconow.com. Don’t forget to tell your friends.

 

Thank you so much for your support. Together we can Free Paco Now!

More about #FreePacoNow

 

The multi-award winning film Give Up Tomorrow points to a huge crisis in the Philippine criminal justice system in one of the most sensational trials in the country’s history, a state of affairs that puts everyone who lives there at constant risk.

 

Watch the trailer here: www.pacodocu.com

 

Together with a powerful coalition of foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, celebrities, policymakers, brands and media the filmmakers have been working exhaustively for the last 17 years to set Paco free.

 

If you’d like to learn more about what the film and campaign have achieved so far please do read this Impact Report:
