truth be told

I just found out about a very interesting documentary...  The following is straight from their website


TRUTH BE TOLD is a feature length documentary that  explores the lives of several individuals raised in the Jehovah’s Witnesses religion. The title of the film refers to the tendency by Jehovah’s Witnesses to regard their beliefs exclusively as ‘the truth’.
‘The documentary is not an indictment of religion but rather a retrospective. In a series of informal interviews, former Jehovah’s Witnesses discuss life experiences within the organization including the impact the religion had on their childhood and family, schooling, adolescence, and approaches to dating and marriage. The film also explores how being raised in that religion has shaped their  spiritual beliefs and attitudes.’
The trailer:
Truth Be Told - 'FREE' from Smithkraft Productions on Vimeo.

An acquaintance of mine is also working on a film that deals with the jehovah's witness stance on blood. There isn't a website or trailer yet, but there's an article about it...

Oh how I love documentaries.
