Deliver Us From Evil
Amy J. Berg, USA, 2006, 101 min
The film chronicles Catholic priest Oliver O’Grady, who admitted to having molested and raped approximately 25 children in Northern California between the late 1970s and early 1990s. After being convicted of child molestation and serving seven years in prison, O’Grady was deported to his native Ireland, where Berg interviewed him in 2005.
Additionally, the film presents trial documents, videotaped depositions, and interviews with activists, theologians, psychologists and lawyers which suggest that not only were Church officials aware of O’Grady’s crimes, they actively took steps to conceal them. – WIKI
