'Mea Maxima Culpa' Wins Early Emmy for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking
22 Aug 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
'Mea Maxima Culpa' wins Documentary Emmy.
‘Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God’ - which won the IFTA for Best Feature Documentary 2013 - has been awarded an early Emmy for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking.

Although the actual Emmys ceremony won’t take place till 15th September, the winners for certain categories are announced early - which require unanimous approval by a jury panel.

Funded by the Irish Film Board and directed by Alex Gibney, ‘Mea Maxima Culpa’ was also recently sold to several international territories and to Netflix (UK) by Content Media.

It examines the cover-up of child abuse within the Catholic Church and follows protests from the US all the way to the Vatican.

It is also nominated in another five Emmy categories, to be decided in September - for Outstanding Writing For Nonfiction Programming; Outstanding Directing For Nonfiction Programming; Outstanding Cinematography For Nonfiction Programming; Outstanding Picture Editing For Nonfiction Programming; and Outstanding Music Composition For A Miniseries, Movie Or A Special (Original Dramatic Score).

Among the honours bestowed upon the film to date is the Grierson Award for Best Documentary at the BFI London Film Festival in October 2012.

‘Mea Maxima Culpa’ is produced by Jigsaw Productions, Wider Film Projects and Below the Radar Films’ Trevor Birney and Ruth O'Reilly.

The 65th Emmy awards will take place on 15th September in LA and the trailer can once again be viewed below:
