BTL: MEA MAXIMA CULPA: SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD

Part of the Between The Lines Festival
Dir: Alex Gibney
United States / Ireland / 2012 / 107mins

Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) investigates the secret crimes of Father Lawrence Murphy, a charismatic Milwaukee priest who abused more than 200 deaf children in a school under his control.

Using this case as a starting point, Gibney follows a trail from the first known protest against clerical sexual abuse in the United States all the way to the Vatican. With righteous anger and bold integrity, Gibney presents a thoroughly researched, chilling account detailing how the Vatican has consistently failed to protect children, burying allegations and evidence of the abuse of minors around the world.

Between The Lines is a three-day festival exploring the challenges facing documentary makers, investigative journalists and citizen reporters in the new media landscape.
