Editorial Reviews

As profiled in the film AGING OUT, Risa Bejarano was a foster care success story. Recently graduated, she set out for college with multiple scholarships and a sense of excitement about her future. Then, she was brutally murdered.

Soon, AGING OUT became the centerpiece of Risa s murder trial, as prosecutors used the film to heighten sympathy for the victim and hatred for the defendant. Troubled that their documentary was being used to advance the prosecutor s argument for the death penalty, filmmakers Vanessa Roth (Academy Aware winner, Freeheld) and Roger Weisberg (Academy Award nominee, Sound and Fury, Why Can t We Be A Family Again?) made a new film, NO TOMORROW, which focuses on the trial and the unexpected use of AGING OUT as evidence. In NO TOMORROW, similarities emerge between Risa and her killer, and viewers are forced to question not just whether the accused deserves to die, but whether the state deserves to kill.

Through extensive interviews with those involved in the trial and tense courtroom footage, NO TOMORROW poses a difficult question: What role did the filmmakers previous documentary play in this chilling death penalty trial?

DVD Features: AGING OUT: READY OR NOT - a 30 minute documentary about Risa s last year of life; Theatrical Trailer

While there is certainly a lot of material to support either side of the death penalty debate, I was intrigued by the documentary "No Tomorrow" for its unusual back story. I will not get into a political or philosophical discussion of the apparent merits and/or faultiness of each position. I will say, however, that the film is particularly well balanced in presentation. That said, if you believe in the death penalty--nothing presented here should deter that belief and your side is well represented. If you are opposed to the death penalty--nothing presented here should deter that belief and your side is well represented. In either case, the film kind of makes the entire issue moot when the statistics of how long it takes to finalize a sentence through appeals is presented (at least in California, where the film's case is located). It is a process that literally takes decades!

"No Tomorrow" is a straightforward point/counterpoint film chronicling the murder trial and subsequent sentencing of Juan Chavez. Chavez was convicted of murdering three individuals, but the case became notorious because one of the victims (and seemingly Chavez's girlfriend) was Risa Bejarano. In the year preceding her death, Bejarano was the subject of a documentary by Roger Weisberg and Vanessa Roth entitled "Aging Out." This film portrayed Risa's struggles as she was exiting the foster care program and trying to establish a new life. At Chavez's sentencing, the prosecutors used this footage to humanize Risa for the jury and it became a large tool in helping to procure the death penalty. Weisberg and Roth, dissatisfied with this development, constructed "No Tomorrow" as a reaction to their previous documentary being used in this unintended and unexpected way.

very well presented. A very sad story. This film really got me thinking about the death penalty in our country.

A very interesting look at the legal system and its use of media to direct the outcome of a trial. It was slightly redundant at times, which was slightly irritating because this documentary had the potential to dig deeper rather than repeating the same points over and over. I would recommend watching it. It's compelling and thought provoking; the viewer is forced to confront many moral questions.
