Google “The Process Church of the Final Judgment” and you will discover a long list of lurid conspiracy theories. The cult has been accused of being the inspiration for Charles Manson’s “crimes of the century”, influencing the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, and being the root of the notorious Son of Sam serial killings. Formed in 1960s England, many of its members were drawn from wealthy families and aristocracy. Newspapers branded them the “Mindbenders in Mayfair” and “The Devil’s Disciples”. Ever since, members of The Process have adopted a secretive stance. Only now have former members of the inner circle agreed to reveal the truth behind the conspiracy theories, and open up about their beliefs, rituals, and the closely guarded secret of the real power behind it all.
The documentary goes behind the cult’s veil of secrecy to track their journey from inception, through wilderness experiences in Mexico, flirtations with pop royalty, and their spread state-side that resulted in them being christened “one of the most dangerous satanic cults in America”. Featuring interviews with John Waters, George Clinton, and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and the music of Funkadelic and Nicholas Bullen (Napalm Death).
Director Neil Edwards, former Process member “Father Malachi”, and Process observer Jan Palomobo will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
