JW film ‘The Truth About the Truth’ needs some help to get to the homestretch

Javier Ortiz and Lloyd Evans have spent two years working on a film that needs some funding to get it into post-production. Here’s some of what Javier and Lloyd have to say about it in this short video appeal…

Javier: Two years ago we decided to document the stories of former Jehovah’s Witnesses whose lives have been impacted by Watchtower in three main areas: Shunning, the refusal of blood transfusions, and the mishandling of child sexual abuse. Lloyd: When we took home the project we did so without any funding sponsors or even film equipment. All we had was a small group of passionate filmmakers and activists willing to work hard driven by a longing to help people by shedding light on the little-known abusive elements of the Jehovah’s Witness faith.
