Following successful screenings in Switzerland, London and Brussels, PRESUMED GUILTY, the investigative documentary that exposes new allegations of Swiss prosecutorial misconduct in the case connected with Belgian Jacques de Groote, 89, a former high ranking representative of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank, screened in New Orleans and Las Vegas to big crowds and rave reviews.
The subject of the documentary, a case known as “MUS affaire,” involves not only Swiss prosecutors, IMF, World Bank representatives and globally recognized politicians (i.e. former U.S. President George H.W. Bush), but also global business structures like the Carlyle Group. The story involves capitalization of unique historical opportunities brought by economic transition in Central Europe after the fall of Communism in the 90s and billion dollar fines Swiss authorities imposed on Central European entrepreneurs.
The screening of PRESUMED GUILTY in New Orleans was held Monday, Feb. 13, at the historic Joy Theatre in New Orleans.
“I could think of no more perfect of a venue for the screening of this investigative documentary,” says American film producer Terry O’Keefe. “It an exquisite, powerful film screened in a building that has been visited some of the most bold and powerful in New Orleans.”
Gold and Star Films, a prominent film company not associated with the film, co-host the New Orleans screening on Monday, Feb. 13, at the Joy Theatre, a theater and historic landmark built in 1947 on Canal Street in downtown New Orleans.
On February 15, Oscar Goodman, legendary Las Vegas mayor and criminal defense attorney, hosted a screening of PRESUMED GUILTY at the Mob and Law Enforcement Museum.
“The film is an important one because it’s a crime that there are good men and women who are wrongfully accused, not just in other countries, but here in America,” says Chuck Muth, who runs the conservative organization Citizen Outreach Foundation. “This is an issue that needs more focus and more films.”
