Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:30pm

For members only. Includes a conversation with writer-director Alex Gibney
Academy Award®–winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney has never shied away from controversial subjects: from his 2007 film, Taxi to the Dark Side, which detailed the circumstance behind the death of an Afghani taxi driver at the hands of American soldiers, to his groundbreaking factual look at financial maleficence in 2005’s Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room. In his newest film for HBO, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (which recently played at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival), he turns to Lawrence Wright’s exciting and tough-minded 2013 nonfiction book of the same name (Wright also serves as a producer on the documentary). Gibney gets eloquent interviews from disenchanted former members of the Church of Scientology—such as writer-director Paul Haggis and Spanky Taylor (former liaison to John Travolta). Going Clear offers a look at the history of Scientology and looks at allegations of intimidation in many forms made against the religion and its leadership. Gibney will be in attendance for a Q&A after the screening.
