Sunday, December 16 at 2/1c the OWN Documentary Club will feature Sons of Perdition, the story of polygamy's exiled youth.
The filmmakers, Jennilyn Merten and Tyler Meason have created a poignant and compelling documentary about children raised in the oldest polygamist compound in the United States. The prophet of this group, Warren Jeffs, banned schooling and books and even excommunicated men, marrying their women to other men. Hundreds of teenage boys left their families and were exiled to the streets.
With unprecedented access, Sons of Perdition follows three boys after they leave the compound in Colorado City. With limited educations and rarely a stable address, the obstacles are enormous. This rare film takes audiences on a three-year-journey into their lives, providing the inside analysis to make this intimate portrait a big story—a timely, critical look at faith, family and religious exile in mainstream America.
