Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

SBS August 20, 2017

Alex Gibney turns his gaze to Scientology in this provocative documentary based on the book by Pulitzer Prize winner Lawrence Wright - a tale of ego, exploitation and lust for power. Gibney profiles eight former members of the Church of Scientology, whose most prominent adherents include A-list Hollywood celebrities, shining a light on how the church cultivates true believers, including their experiences and what they are willing to do in the name of religion. Fearless and fascinating, this latest cinematic opus is a powerful exploration of the psychological impact of blind faith: what Lawrence Wright calls the prison of belief.

A compass. A pentagram. An all-seeing eye. Symbols, secrets, codes. For the last 300 years, one group has found itself as a fascinating subject of the conspiracy theorists: The Freemasons. But why? Are the Masons a secret society bent on world domination as some might suggest? Or are they just a fraternity who happen to have secrets? Why has this seemingly harmless gentleman's club been accused of everything from starting the French Revolution, to covering up the Jack the Ripper murders?
