Three Identical Strangers
cascarones posted a topic in Quiverfull of DocumentariesI've seen it twice now and it's very compelling, a bit long on the media blitz they endured and participated in. It focuses on the three triplets who were separated at birth for a study in partnership with a prominent Jewish adoption agency in New York, their discovery of one another at college and beyond. Other multiples who were also separated for the same study also are a focus during the quest for answers of why and how this was done to children, why families weren't told and what information they've been able to gain. It covers adoption issues (meeting family you've never met and the various relationships that aren't perfect), questionable human study practices that make my heart ache and the impact media frenzy has on people. I saw it at a quirky local theater, so I don't think it's on Netflix or streaming yet. Has anyone else seen it?
"The Family" on Netflix- influential fundamentalist group
NakedKnees posted a topic in Quiver Full of PoliticsIs anyone else watching The Family on Netflix? I'm only two episodes in, but in the first episode alone they touch on a lot of subjects I've seen come up here: very strict American fundie "gender" role expectations, resistance to The World™️, and what's so great about the story of David. I'm not big on the use of reenactments, but it's interesting to see this niche-ish interest of mine so explicitly on Netflix. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
Call the Midwife (on PBS in the US)
gardenvarietycitizen posted a topic in Quiverfull of TVI'm just curious if anyone watched a show "Call the Midwife"? The first episode aired on PBS in the US tonight, it's about a midwife in the East End of London in the 1950s. In the first episode one of the clients is having her 25th kid, I couldn't help but think "take THAT Michelle!!!"
Sacrilicious Twerk-a-Work posted a topic in Quiverfull of DocumentariesI first saw 'Love Me' on Netflix back in 2014. It covers the topic of foreign marriage brokers and international dating, known more commonly as 'mail order brides'. I enjoyed this documentary as it did not portray the topic matter in a hokey or slanted manner. I like that there were perspectives offered from the American men and some of the Ukraine women involved. This opens many doors of "What is love?", how does American entitlement play into relationships, how do customs play into adult relationships? I know this used to be on Netflix, it is now on Amazon Prime Video and YouTube for viewing. SPOILER ALERT: interview with the director about the movie, including a comment on one of the men featured being kind of a creep. http://scenecreek.com/jonathan-narducci-talks-about-love-me/
The Devil's Trap
Don'tlikekoolaid posted a topic in Quiverfull of DocumentariesI can't post a link with my phone but you can google the devil's trap documentary and it comes right up. It really illustrates the damage these cults can do. It is so sad but funny as well. Very well done.
