Closely based on the National Book Award Finalist by Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Lawrence Wright, GOING CLEAR premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival to standing ovations and rave reviews. Slate called the film a “stunning exposé of an organization and religion too long shrouded in mystery.” GOING CLEAR will air on HBO on March 29th.
GOING CLEAR pulls back the curtain on one of the most secretive organizations at work today. Through interviews with eight former scientologists, archive footage, and dramatic reconstructions, the documentary recounts the history of Scientology, airs allegations of the abuse of members, and highlights the role played by celebrities associated with the church.
