Frontline: Hand of God

2007 NR

Filmmaker Joe Cultrera provides a compelling inside look at the effect of sexual abuse by a Catholic priest on one family -- his own -- in this significant documentary. In the 1960s, Father Joseph Birmingham molested Cultrera's brother, Paul; the family discusses the impact of this dark secret and how they survived betrayal by the church they trusted and by Birmingham, who is alleged to have molested almost 100 children.
