Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief Film Poster


Alex Gibney directs this critically acclaimed documentary which aims to uncover the inner workings of the Church of Scientology. Now famous for its ever-growing roster of celebrity members including John Travolta and Tom Cruise, the church was originally incorporated in 1953 by American sci-fi and fantasy author L. Ron Hubbard. Gibney's film gives a history of Scientology from its beginnings as a self-help system and its subsequent transformation into the recognised religion that it has become today. Ex-church members including Paul Haggis and Jason Beghe also tell of the abuse, coercion and exploitation which allegedly takes place under the church's new leader, and former assistant to L. Ron Hubbard, David Miscavige.
