Mexico documentary plays on despite judge’s order
A highly-popular documentary exposing serious flaws in Mexico’s justice system was still playing in Mexican theaters Saturday despite a judge’s order to suspend the screenings last week.
“For the moment, we haven’t received a legal or administrative order to stop us showing ‘Presumed Guilty,'” distributor Cinepolis said in a statement.
Cinepolis said it had contested the suspension and that the producers and the authorities would make similar complaints.
More than 500,000 people have already seen “Presumed Guilty” since its Mexican release on February 18, making it the most successful Mexican documentary of all time.
