How I Created a Cult
Year of Production
For the first time, go inside the mind of a notorious American guru as he confesses How I Created A Cult. Featuring in depth interviews from his devotees detailing psychological abuse, extortion, unrelenting domination and control over their personal and professional lives, this three-part documentary mini-series examines the path to corruption from idealistic beginnings to the crumble of a worldwide spiritual empire worth millions. Through 25 years of archive footage, photos and exclusive interviews, How I Created A Cult examines what attracts people to charismatic leaders and how the best of intentions can turn dark when authoritarian power structures benefit those in power.
How I Created A Cult is about more than just one man and his organization, it is a deep exploration of how absolute power corrupts, the danger of charismatic leaders, and the ultimate risk of surrendering everything to anyone or anything.
