Secret Files of the Inquisition
22 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of hearing the director (David Rabinovitch) speak this past summer about not only this film but in regard to documentary film making in general. He spoke of the importance of getting the "facts" right when making films and this project (probably because of the possible emotional reactions) it was especially important to go to the source. The producers of "Secret Files of the Inquisition" were given access to actual records of inquisitions as recorded during the times. He said he was quite moved in reading records of the trials. He also felt privileged in having the Vatacan open these records to him. We all will see things from different perspectives and film makers are certainly not above putting their own spin on things. The "facts" in this film came from the archives of the Vatican. Each will have their own interpretation. I suggest this film is certainly worth a watch.
