Presumed Guilty – Presunto Culpable
(Spanish with English subtitles)
HQ 632x360 resolution
Imagine being picked up off the street, told you have committed a murder you know nothing about and then finding yourself sentenced to 20 years in jail. In December 2005 this happened to Antonio “Toño” Zúñiga in Mexico City and, like thousands of other innocent people, he was wrongfully imprisoned. Presumed Guilty, a feature length (89 Min.) documentary, is the story of two young lawyers and their struggle to free Zúñiga. Their surprising tool? A camera that would be filming Zúñiga’s entire retrial. Shot over three years with unprecedented access to the Mexican court and prison systems, the film is highly dramatic and full of real suspense, yet it is also a searing indictment of a system that presumes guilt and thereby relieves the police of the need to investigate.
