Screen25 presents: APOSTASY at Harris Academy South Norwood (14 NOV 19:45):
What would you do if you had to choose between your faith and your family? Daniel Kokotajilo’s brazen and honest debut lifts the veil on life in a tight-knit community of Jehovah’s Witnesses, told through the eyes of a family entrenched in a crisis of faith.
Alex, Luisa and their mother, Ivanna, are united in The Truth. Alex looks up to her confident older sister, while striving to follow in Ivanna’s footsteps as a ‘good Witness’. But when Luisa starts to question the advice of the Elders, she makes a life-altering transgression that threatens to expel her from the congregation. Unless Ivanna and Alex can persuade her to return, they must shun her completely.
Written and directed by a former Jehovah’s Witness, Apostasy provides a rare insight into the complex nature of faith, family, duty and love.
