CULTURE Minister Carál Ní Chuilín has praised Below the Radar TV and the team involved in the Emmy-winning documentary Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God.
The film, directed by Alex Gibney, received an Emmy from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for exceptional merit in documentary filmmaking.
“This win is a further boost for a powerful film which has already gained international recognition and a number of awards,” she said.
The documentary, examining abuse in the Catholic Church, was made in conjunction with HBO Documentary Films and Wider Film Projects.
“The Emmy Awards are highest-profile honours in television.
“This win underlines the growing confidence of the film industry here in the north, and is the latest example of a local company competing on a global stage.”
