RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Through the Lens: Prophet's Prey

We continue our series on documentary film Thursday with director Amy Berg’s film Prophet’s Prey. It’s an exposé of the rise and fall of Warren Jeffs, the self-declared prophet of the FLDS Church. The film recounts the dogged efforts of numerous people—including the writer Jon Krakauer, and Sam Brower, a private investigator—to shed light on Jeffs’ incredibly secretive polygamous community and ultimately bring the man to justice. Berg joins us Thursday to talk about her film.

On Wednesday, March 18, RadioWest and the Utah Film Center are screening Prophet's Prey at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City at 7 p.m. It's part of our Through the Lens film series. Doug Fabrizio will host a Q&A with Amy Berg and Sam Brower following the screening. The event is free and open to the public. DETAILS
