Product Description
Presunto Culpable (Presumed Guilty) DVD in Spanish with Subtitles in English

Two lawyers struggle to free a man who has been wrongly convicted by a judicial system that doesn't care to admit
mistakes in this documentary from filmmakers Roberto Hernández and Geoffrey Smith. Antonio Zuniga was a street
performer and peddler in Mexico who was arrested on charges of murder and convicted largely on the testimony of one
man. However, the man was a close relative of the victim who had no firm evidence against Zuniga, while the accused
could produce several witnesses able to place him far from the scene of the crime at the time of the murder.
Despite this, Zuniga was found guilty, and when lawyers Roberto Hernández and Layda Negrete learned about his case,
they agreed to help. After it was revealed that the lawyer appointed to represent Zuniga did not have a valid
license, authorities grudgingly agreed to a new trial, but with the same judge presiding, who showed little
interest in evidence that Zuniga was falsely convicted. Battling an arrogant judge, uncooperative witnesses and a
legal system riddled with corruption, Hernández and Negrete find it's easy to prove Zuniga's innocence, but hard to
get the powers that be to acknowledge this fact. PRESUMED GUILTY was an official selection at the 2009 Toronto
International Film Festival.

En diciembre de 2005, Ton° Zuniga fue detenido en las calles de la Ciudad de Mexico y condenado a 20 anos por un
asesinato que desconocia totalmente. Un amigo de Ton() se puso en contacto con Roberto Hernandez y Layda Negrete,
dos jOvenes abogados quienes se habian dado a conocer en Mexico tras ayudar a otro hombre inocente a salir de la
carcel. Revisando el caso de Torio, Roberto y Layda consiguieron que le hicieran un nuevo juicio, ante las camaras,
y reclutaron la ayuda del cineasta Geoffrey Smith (El Cirujano Ingles) para narrar la saga. Filmada durante el
curso de tres anos con un acceso sin precedentes a los tribunales y las carceles de Mexico, esta dramatica historia
es una critica mordaz a un sistema judicial que presume culpabilidad.

In December 2005, Tono Zuniga was picked up by police off the street in Mexico City, Mexico, and sentenced to 20
years for a murder he knew nothing about. Two young lawyers, Roberto Hernandez and Layda Negrete decided to fight
the case. They managed to get a retrial—on camera—and enlisted the help of filmmaker Geoffrey Smith (The English
Surgeon) to chronicle the saga. Shot over three years with unprecedented access to the Mexican courts and prisons,
this dramatic story is a searing indictment of a justice system that presumes guilt.
