Mexican Court Stops DVD Distribution of PRESUMED GUILTY


A Mexican federal court ordered few days ago the halt of the DVD distribution of blockbuster documentary Presunto culpable / Presumed Guilty (pictured) as part of an ongoing trial of appeal. As it was reported by some Mexican newspapers, the filmmakers' lawyer confirmed last Friday the fact that the court ordered Distrimax to refrain from distributing the DVD, which was released last July. It was not clear thought the impact that the order would have on the DVDs that were already for sale at stores throughout the country.

The film directed by Roberto Hernández and Geoffrey Smith went to become the highest-grossing Mexican documentary film when it was released in theaters last spring. The release got an additional boost at the box-office after a federal court ordered the temporary suspension of the film from the theaters based on a legal claim.
