  1. I'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?
  2. Is 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)

    I'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!!!"

    Love Me

    I 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

    I 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.
  6. If any of you ever get the chance, search on you tube and type in "Quiverfull". The video is the fist thumbnail that comes up and the video is posted by paulmartson. Anyway, it shows a fundie family in Virginia being interviewed by Jennifer London (of World Report). The family has seven kids and are admittedly part of the quiverfull movement. The parents (Brad and Allison Shed) raise their kids much like the Duggars. The oldest daughter Olivia, basically mothers her younger sisters (there is only one boy in the family). She talks very bubbly like the Duggar's Jill and is (from her words) pefectly content to practice her future role as Godly wife and homemaker. It is quite the interesting video.

    Beautiful Tragedy

    Has anyone seen the documentary "A Beautiful Tragedy?" Its on youtube, and although it has nothing to do with Fundamentalism, it is a great watch. It is basically about a Russian Teenager who is going through a very rigorous ballet program and goes through her depression, loneliness, anorexia, etc. I Suggest y'all watch it
  8. I thought this was going to be a Civil War documentary - instead, I am watching a frustrated filmmaker with hopes of hooking up with every woman he encounters, a la 1986. It's comical and sad, and really riveting in a train wreck sort of way.
  9. Hey Guys! I have a fun obsession with North Korea and I enjoy learning about it as much as I can. I've seen all the docs available on Netflix: Crossing the Line National Geographic: Inside North Korea Kimjongilia Seoul Train I was wondering if anyone could recommend some more documentaries, books, tv episodes, etc? Thanks in advance!
  10. The mention of documentaries in the No Place Like Home thread got me wondering if anyone would share their favorite cult/fundie documentary recommendations. Bonus if they are on Netflix! When I was in college i watched Jesus Camp and found it fascinating. I would like to watch it again. My roommate had an upbringing similar...lots of social pressure, even for kids, to speak in tongues and faint and all that. She found it very stressful to watch. There were some interesting scenes involving a liberal Christian radio station out of the Midwest somewhere and I remember wanting to research it. Anyone?
  11. Anyone seen this? What are your thoughts? I have come to this conclusion: It's probably unnatural and therefore unhealthy to drink other animals' milk. What I am wondering about - if veganism is the answer to all the unsolved medical problems, why don't we all know about it yet?!
  12. Did anyone else watch this? It's about two of Warren's kids who left the FLDS. They both say they were victims of child sexual abuse by Warren.

    Documentary about Quiverful

    It's here : Sorry if we previously speak about it.
  14. Tonight, Bridegroom is premiering on OWN. It tells the story of Shane Bitney Crone who was banned from the funeral of his partner Tom Bridegroom by Tom's family. The documentary is going to focus on gay rights, domestic partnerships, and gay marriage. It will be premiering at 10 pm eastern time. I believe it will be released on Netflix today too.
  15. Hello my Jingerites. I just posted a review for a fun, guilty pleasure flick "The Boys and Girls' Guide to Getting Down." It's definitely not a movie for the fundie crowd. http://blog.freejinger.org/movie-review ... ting-down/
  16. I am curious did anyone watch the Ken Burn's Central Park Five documentary last night on PBS. I have to say while well done it was disturbing on many levels. The one I found most disturbing was the media not digging into the story and just contributing to the feeding frenzy. There was no looking into the facts or thinking something here doesn't add up. Instead it was a common case of the easy sensational story with little questioning or fact checking.

    Movie Review: Girls Rock

    Hello y'all. I just posted my review of the documentary "Girls Rock" at our humble blog. I chose to provide the link here because it really doesn't snark on fundies. However, it's a great movie, and I think a lot of my Jingerites will like it. http://blog.freejinger.org/movie-review-girls-rock/
  18. I was flipping through the channels and came across this new HBO Documentary - American Winter. http://www.americanwinterfilm.com/ I was bawling within minutes of watching this. I started about 20 minutes into the program, and the scene was the mother and son going to the Panera 'pay what you can' cafe for dinner - but its closed. And the mother has no food for her 11 year old son, and she loses it and is so distraught... and the boy tries to comfort her. It hit a little too close to home. My dh and I have had some rough times.... and I did when I was a kid, too. This movie was filmed in my city and reminded me of people I see every day. By the time it was over, I was so angry at all the assholes out there that try to take away social services, and say that people who need help are lazy. Its such BULLSHIT. The woman I mentioned above was poor and broke because her husband died. Not because she was lazy. Everyone should have to watch this movie, especially the fundies and hard core right-wing 'anti social services' types.
  19. This coming Sunday, Bio Channel is premiering a new documentary series called Escaping Evil:My Life In A Cult. Well known FLDS escapee and activist Flora Jessop will be the focus of the first episode. ETA: The air time is 10 pm eastern and here is a link to a video clip http://www.biography.com/tv/escaping-ev ... 9542083630
  20. Episode One: Trapped, hulu.com/watch/433191#i0,p0,d0 Episode Two: Escape, hulu.com/watch/433192#i0,p0,d0

    Miss Navajo

    This is a documentary on Netflix. Despite the streaming issues (curse you interwebs) this is a fascinating look at contemporary Navajo culture through the window of this one contest, which includes butchering a sheep as one of the skills that has to be mastered! Plus snippets of religion, daily life on some reservations (I am sure some have running water) as well as the history of the contest and its importance. (totally off topic, but I am slayed that Aidan Turner is now secretly Bill Gothard.)
  22. I have not watched the episode yet. I saw the episode on Reddit Documentaries and thought FJ may enjoy the video. I plan on watching it tonight. Mods, please feel free to move to chatter if necessary.

    Documentary: I Escaped a Cult

    I DVR'd the documentary "I Escaped a Cult" on the National Geographic Channel. Wow, totally eye opening and scary. Has anyone else watched the documentary?
  24. I am saying alleged until I can confirm it, but this was posted on reddit and the consensus seems to be that it is real. I have a lot of thoughts on this, I need to make them come out in a way that makes sense, but having been raised in various denominations of evangelical christianity, the things we were taught about the LDS church were not positive. This video does nothing to dispel that, in fact I think this is probably one of the creepiest things I have ever seen. This is a shortened clip, but that youtube account also has one that is listed to be the entire ceremony, it is about 1:15 long. http://youtu.be/6udew9axmdM

    Oma & Bella

    http://omabella.com/about.html If any of you get the chance, watch this movie. It's about two elderly Jewish women who survived the Holocaust and are now living in Berlin. Oma's granddaughter was planning on writing a cook book with all of her grandmother's favorite recipes, but then she realized that the stories of these two amazing women were too important not to tell. The movie is sad, and funny, and just wonderful. The cook book was written, anyway, and I had the chance to meet Bella, Oma, and Alexa the granddaughter at its release yesterday. Alexa said the movie will be released on iTunes in the US, but I'm not sure when. Edited because I've had a long day and forgot how to post links.
