Abstract:

More than 10,000 children have reportedly been sexually abused by Catholic priests in the United States in recent decades. Filmmaker Joe Cultrera tells the personal story of how his brother Paul was molested in the 1960s by Father Joseph Birmingham, reported to have abused nearly 100 other children. Paul Cultrera kept his secret for 30 years before confronting the church and starting his own investigation into how the Archdiocese of Boston covered up allegations against Father Birmingham and moved him from parish to parish. The Cultrera family tells their story of faith betrayed by the scandal that has engulfed the Catholic Church.
