A mesmerizing film that takes a rare, insider’s look at practitioners of Scientology, revealing how belief systems powerfully manifest in the physical world. Director (and AFS Grant recipient) Jeffrey Peixoto in attendance.
“Peixoto spent almost a decade gaining the trust of his subjects and, subsequently, their confidence in his project shines through the film.” – Vikram Murthi, Roger Ebert
“It’s a profound, productively unsettling, and extremely accomplished film, that, as the director states, is less about its ostensible subject than it is an extended reflection in the truest sense.” – Nicolas Rapold, Film Comment
