THE SACRAMENT Premieres Today!

Ti West's The Sacrament premieres this evening. Grounded in the bloody history and tragic betrayal of Jonestown, The Sacrament explores the extremes of religious belief.

From Colin Geddes' description at

Patrick (Kentucker Audley) is a fashion photographer. When his colleagues Sam (AJ Bowen) and Jake (Joe Swanberg, who also stars in Proxy in this year’s Vanguard program), correspondents for Vice magazine, catch wind of a letter he received from his estranged sister Caroline (Amy Seimetz), they decide her story would be a great subject for a documentary — she's living in a "sober" commune at an unnamed location outside the United States.

The three set off for a visit. While Patrick reunites with his sister, Sam and Jake investigate why members of the isolated community have followed a mysterious leader they call Father off American soil. Understandably skeptical at first, the guys slowly come around to the group's utopian claims. 

(Incidentally, we think it is a fantastic touch that the reporters work for Vice magazine).
