'Going Clear' subject Hana Eltringham Whitfield fills us in on a Scientology secret or two - 2015-03-22
Hana was one of Scientology's original Sea Org members in 1967, and captained a couple of the vessels in L. Ron Hubbard's small armada when he ran Scientology from sea until 1975. In the film, she provides key insights about what it was like to work with Hubbard, and how she reacted when she encountered the OT III materials when they were first released in 1968. Her account is one of the best parts of Going Clear's first half, and it was a delight to see so much of her on the big screen.
But her journey has many more amazing twists and turns than were able to fit in either Gibney's film or Lawrence Wright's epic book. And that's why we're happy to report that Hana has revealed to us that she has written a book proposal of her own and several chapters that she's let us see, and it is material that will knock your socks off.
