Leaving the Exclusive Brethren
Aspect Ratio: 4:3
Director: Kathleen Mantel
Leaving the Exclusive Brethren presents true stories of individuals and families who have fallen from grace and been excommunicated from the Exclusive Brethren.
These are heartbreaking stories of men and women who are cast aside by those closest and dearest in the name of God. We meet families torn apart by this sect, a sect that ironically holds the family as the most fundamental of institutions.
People who were told they could no longer be a member of their family because of their choice of partner, faith or lifestyle.
