13.09.2017 21:00 - English

Documentary about corruption in Mexico’s legal system. The discussion after the film is moderated by Siri Gloppen (UiB/CMI).

Are you interested in how a lack of judicial accountability and independence can deeply impact not just the lives of individuals but that of an entire country? Then join us for an evening of

Film, Reflection & Popcorn

at the Bergen Resource Center on September 13th!

The documentary

Presumed Guilty

tells the compelling story of Mexican lawyers Hernández and Negrete who attempt to defend a wrongfully convicted man against a disdainful judge and a legal system crippled with corruption. While this box office record holder paints an intimate picture of an individual story, it also gives crucial insights into the Mexican legal system as a whole. These insights will be further discussed in a debate following the movie.
