Holy Hell


Filmmaker Will Allen was 22 when he joined a community of people led by a man named Michel. Allen says at first he seemed elegant and smart and he promised them enlightenment. But it became clear Michel was a megalomaniac and he was soon leading by manipulation, paranoia, and abuse. As the group fell apart, Allen knew he had to find a way out of what he came to realize was a cult. Friday, he and former member Christopher Johnston join Doug to talk about the documentary film Holy Hell. [Rebroadcast]

On Tuesday, May 31, the Utah Film Center is screening Holy Hell at the Main Downtown Library in Salt Lake City. That's at 7 PM and it's free and open to the public. DETAILS
