A devastating portrait of abuse and repression written and directed by filmmaker Moisés Aisemberg from Mexico City. “Guilt” tells the story of a young boy who endures further humiliation and punishment when trying to tell the truth of what happened to him. The film offers a stark glimpse into the layers of trauma children experience and the involuntary repression that takes place within a society that tolerates abuse.
