ONLINE SCREENING In 2008, a dramatic raid at the Yearning for Zion Ranch generated attention worldwide, as law enforcement agents uncovered evidence of sexual, physical and psychological abuse and took 400+ children into custody. Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey, directed by Emmy and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Rachel Dretzin, gives viewers an in-depth look into the secretive polygamous sect of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the rise of self-professed prophet Warren Jeffs. Featuring never-before-seen archival footage and harrowing personal stories, the series follows the complete unraveling of the FLDS into an oppressive criminal cult under Warren Jeffs’ rule. Running time: 45 minutes.

This online screening is available in the United States and US Territories.

Closed Captions are available for the conversation.
