Latest Documentary

Cogent/Benger’s latest film,
I, PEDOPHILE, had its broadcast premiére on CBC-TV’s Firsthand series on March 10, 2016.

It is the product of an investigation by director/editor Matthew Campea into the inner lives of pedophiles. “Being born a pedophile is probably one of the worst things that could happen to you.
