Alex Gibney’s doc Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence In The House Of God has been sold to a raft of international broadcasters by Content Media.
The international distributor has closed deals with German and French network Arte as well as Canada (CBC), Australia and New Zealand (Madman), Brazil (Globosat/Horizonte), Italy (Feltrinelli), Spain (DTS), Portugal (Lusomundo), Finland (YLE), Denmark (DR), Sweden (SVT), Norway (Norwegian Broadcasting Company), Poland (HBO), Israel (DBS), Latin America (HBO Ole), the Netherlands (HBO), former Yugoslavia (Demiurg), and Republic Of Ireland (Element Pictures).
Netflix has also acquired digital rights to the 90-minute doc in the UK and the BBC took broadcast rights.
The film, which is produced by Gibney’s Jigsaw Productions in association with Wider Film Projects, Below The Radar Films and the Irish Film Board for US cable network HBO, exposes the abuse of power in the Catholic Church and a cover-up that goes all the way to the Vatican.
Content chief executive officer John Schmidt said: “Alex’s masterful, gripping work has once again attracted the attention of buyers around the world and across every media platform, as well as the much-deserved acknowledgement of the creative community.”
