Not Guilty tells the stories of some of the 15,000 British men living with criminal records for offences committed under long-defunct anti-homosexuality laws. On 1st February 2017 the government passed a new ‘Alan Turing law’ granting pardons for those convicted – but some are refusing to accept a pardon, demanding instead a full apology. At the heart of the film are emotional testimonies of persecution long after the 1967 Act first began to decriminalise homosexuality in Britain.
