A Thousand Cuts is an award-winning documentary of Maria's work.  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).
