Attorney-turned-filmmaker David Feige’s feature documentary debut is a challenging investigation into a profound legal mire. The term “sex offence” applies to a broad range of infractions, from child-rape to sexting, and yet “sex offender” is a scarlet letter that can make ordinary life impossible for those who bear it, even after being ostensibly reformed.

Featuring the horrifying case of South Florida lobbyist Ron Book and his daughter Lauren, who founded Lauren’s Kids and is now a Florida state senator, Untouchable explores all sides of this hot-button issue. Feige urges us not to simplify a complex subject, to look closely at the pariahs we create and what we consider to be genuine justice.

This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s Florida Focus Film Category
