Tribeca: 'My Scientology Movie' Filmmakers Were Confronted by Church Members During Shoot - 2016-04-15
Given the controversy unleashed by Alex Gibney's Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, there's every reason to expect sparks to fly at Sunday's international premiere of John Dower's new documentary My Scientology Movie and its post-screening Q&A at the Tribeca Film Festival.
"I'd love for someone from the church to come see it," Dower told The Hollywood Reporter. "I don't think any of them have seen it yet. You know, hold your judgment. You might be surprised."
The film follows Louis Theroux — a guerilla-style BBC journalist who has been dubbed Britain's Michael Moore for taking viewers inside bizarre American subcultures like militias and the porn industry — in his quest to understand the psyche behind the average Church of Scientology member.
