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
Amy Berg is the director of the documentary films West Memphis Three and Deliver Us From Evil, about a Catholic priest who molested countless children. Prophet's Prey premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival in the Doc Premiers category.
