WORLD PREMIERE: The Shrinking Cult of Scientology, A Video By Tiziano Lugli - 2013-10-04
The Underground Bunker is privileged to debut a new video by Los Angeles music producer and ex-Scientologist Tiziano Lugli. We've shown some of his previous efforts that feature ex-church members talking about Scientology. But none of them have quite had the impact of this four-minute film.
We expect that regular readers of this website will recognize most of the people who appear. Some of them are less familiar. All of them are telling their own stories. One face that we haven't seen in Tiziano's previous films is the one you see to the right. That's Yannus Sufandi, the only person who appears in the video who was never a Scientologist. But if you read our story last month, you know that his nine-year relationship with dancer Manuela Oliveira ended when she decided to join Scientology's "Sea Org" after spending only a few months in the church. The Sea Org takes total dedication. After Manuela signed its billion-year contract, she moved out, leaving Yannus wondering what he'd done wrong.
Let us know who you recognize in the video, and what you think of Tiziano's latest effort. And please, play this at full screen...
