MEA MAXIMA CULPA: "SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD"
MEA MAXIMA CULPA: "STILTE IN HET HUIS VAN GOD"

 

 

Een nieuwe documentaire van Oscar-winnende filmmaker Alex Gibney, onderzoekt hoe een charismatische priester in Milwaukee meer dan 200 dove kinderen misbruikt in een katholiek internaat onder zijn controle.
De jonge dove studenten werden keer op keer lastig gevallen door Father Lawrence Murphy, die ze’s nachts stalkte in hun slaapzalen, op reis om zijn landelijke buitenhuis, en zelfs in de biechtstoel.

Chosen is testament to the power of a compelling story, simply told. The film deals with a subject often whispered but rarely spoken about – the sexual abuse of boys by teachers in Britain’s private schools.

Brian woods interviewing AlastairFor thirty years the boys, and the men they became, stayed silent, nursing the dark secret of the abuse they suffered. But in this film, Tom, Mark and Alastair break that silence with spellbinding articulacy and breathtaking honesty - telling their stories straight to camera.

Standing apart from more tabloid models of talking about paedophilia, this film is sensitively told, allowing the men to talk directly about their experiences and the effect it has had on the rest of their lives.

Chosen reveals how these boys were groomed, how the private school system is poorly regulated, how abuse goes undetected, and why we need to listen.
