Element Pictures Distribution is pleased to announce the forthcoming Irish DVD release of MEA MAXIMA CULPA: SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD, the critically acclaimed latest feature documentary from Oscar®-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney. Winner of this year’s George Morrison IFTA award for Best Documentary, MEA MAXIMA CULPA also took the Grierson Award for Best Documentary at the 2012 BFI London Film Festival.
MEA MAXIMA CULPA: SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD explores the abuse of power in the Catholic Church through the story of four courageous deaf men, who in the first known case of public protest, set out to expose the priest who abused them.
Through their case the film follows 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.
MAXIMA CULPA: SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD features the voices of Chris Cooper, Ethan Hawke, Jamey Sheridan and John Slattery. The DVD, which includes English subtitles, will be available to buy nationwide from 22nd March. Purchase your copy today from the Element Pictures Distribution Shop
