DocHouse Thursdays: GOING CLEAR + Alex Gibney Q&A (Skype)

Dir: Alex Gibney
United States / 2014 / 120mins

"... at times jaw-dropping, scary, unnerving, even disturbingly funny." - San Francisco Chronicle

"... the most exciting - and disturbing - work of cinematic non-fiction in a long time." - BBC

"The cult is right to be scared. Going Clear is spectacular stuff. Literally." - New York Magazine

It’s Oscars time, pick a winner! In the run up to awards season, catch up on some of the docs that made the shortlist and select what you think will win the top prize at the Academy Awards in February 2016. 

Oscar winning director Alex Gibney profiles eight former members of the Church of Scientology, whose most prominent members include Hollywood celebrities. Gibney shines a light on how the church cultivates true believers, detailing their experiences and what they are willing to do in the name of Scientology.

Going Clear is a provocative tale of ego, exploitation and lust for power.

Director Alex Gibney will join us following the screening for a Q&A via Skype.
