Directed by Amy Berg | 2015

An engrossing expose of the sexual abuse within the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints (FLDS), this scorching documentary captures tyrannical leader Warren Jeffs’ journey from rising religious fanatic to convicted felon. Oscar nominee Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil, West of Memphis) interviews ex-members of the isolated polygamist community who share brutal accounts of the psychological control Jeffs once wielded—and in some cases still does. Accompanied by a solemn, beautiful score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, Prophet’s Prey confronts the trauma FLDS fostered, condemning its leader and his manipulation of religion, obedience, and power.
