I wanted to give everyone an update on the documentary that many of us have been waiting for, called, “Truth Be Told.” Gregorio Smith, the creator of the film, issued the following post on Facebook:
FYI folks…TRUTH BE TOLD is DONE and is currently being submitted to a number of national/international film festivals. Stay tuned for further info (including screening announcements).
We thank the exjw online community for their support. I want to recognize and thank Craig Sparlock Stevens in particular for his “unofficial” yet pithy teaser for the documentary:
More to come…
If you follow the link, it will take you to small video about the documentary. Or you can just watch it above.
Man, I can’t wait to see the actual film! I do wonder if it will be available where I live, as many smaller or independent films don’t make it to my neck of the woods. Maybe there will be an online version for people who can’t see it in a theater. (Gregorio, I hope you’re listening.)
Note the plot outline is as follows:
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 current spiritual beliefs and attitudes.
This could be the film we’ve been hoping for. Fingers crossed!
