|Holy Hell – Trailer
In 1985, recent film school graduate Will Allen became a member of The Buddhafield, a Los Angeles area spiritual group. Also acting as the groupâ€™s official videographer, he began to document their activities, which centered on the mysterious leader they called Michel, or The Teacher. Over time, the groupâ€™s dark side began to surface as total devotion turned to paranoia, until finally, unexpected truths about their enlightened leader were revealedâ€”all in front of Allenâ€™s camera. This incredible, 22-year archive of video footage became the basis for HOLY HELL. Now, for the first time since he left the group, Allen turns the camera on himself and asks fellow ex-cult members to come to terms with their past and the unbelievable deceit they experienced.
