TVO presents a special screening of the award-winning TVO Original, Prey!
TVO Original Prey won two awards at the 2019 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival. Prey is a moving and unflinching account of a sexual abuse survivor's legal fight against the Catholic Church. Most civil court cases seeking damages due to sex abuse by the clergy are settled out of court and kept quiet. In Prey, Rod MacLeod, who as a boy was abused for years by a Catholic priest and teacher, chooses a public trial to shine a light on these cases.
A panel discussion moderated by Colin Ellis, producer for The Agenda as well as host of TVO’s On Docs Podcast will follow.
