Acclaimed documentarian and Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney investigates the sex scandals of the Roman Catholic Church, beginning in 1950s Milwaukee. Pledging to put a public face on sexual abuse, five deaf men and abuse survivors led the first publicly known protest against an abusive priest. This harrowing film travels the globe and unearths a systematic cover up of abuse and scandal. The survivors’ fight for justice is further complicated when Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the former Vatican overseer of sex-abuse cases, is named Pope Benedict XVI. MEA MAXIMA CULPA stands as an important document for social justice and change.
