Mexican Documentary's Showings Stalled Temporarily

A Mexican judge has told the makers of the film "Presumed Guilty" ( original Spanish title Presunto Culpable) that they must suspend showings of the documentary which portrays the trial of José Antonio Zuñiga temporarily. A witness who testified at the trial and who is shown in the film has filed a complaint saying that he never signed a release. Producer Roberto Hernandez, who is also an attorney, and head of the group Lawyers With Cameras, says he does not need a release to show such footage, since it is part of the public record. More here from The Hollywood Reporter. More about the film here.
