Abuse Documentary: The Shame of the Catholic Church

 

Sexual abuse in the Catholic Church

has been making headlines for years.

Some priests have been punished,

but what about the bishops who shielded them?

Silence in the House of God: Mea Maxima Culpa - Official Trailer (2012)


Coming to Australian cinemas on 21 March 2013

In SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD: MEA MAXIMA CULPA

 

Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney

exposes the abuse of power in the Catholic Church

and a cover-up that winds its way

from the row houses of Milwaukee Wisconsin,

through the bare ruined choirs of Ireland's churches

all the way to the highest office of the Vatican.

 

By investigating the secret crimes of a charismatic priest

who abused over 200 deaf children in a school under his control

-- the film shows the face of evil that lurks behind the smiles and denials

of authority figures and institutions

who believe that because they stand for good they can do no wrong.

 

The film documents the first known public protest

against clerical sex abuse in the U.S.A.,

a struggle of more than three decades

that ultimately led to a lawsuit against the Pontiff himself.

 

These heroes, four deaf young men, set out to expose the priest

who had abused them and so many others

by trying to make their voices "heard".

 

Their investigation helped to uncover documents

from the secret Vatican Archives that shows the Pope

-- who must operate within the mysterious rules of the roman Curia --

as both responsible and helpless in the face of evil.
