Christiane Amanpour, Maria Ressa & Ramona Diaz in Conversation About ‘A Thousand Cuts’

January 8, 2021

Christiane Amanpour hosts a roundtable conversation about the new documentary A Thousand Cuts with director Ramona Diaz and film subject Maria Ressa, a prime target in Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on the press.

This conversation was produced in collaboration with WLIW’s Amanpour & Company.

Through the lens of Duterte’s crackdown on the news media and Ressa’s vow to “hold the line,” the film chronicles what can happen to democracy when disinformation flourishes on social media and press freedom is under threat.
