United States 2015, 120 min, English, Hebrew subtitles

The film profiles eight former members of the Church of Scientology, exploring the psychological impact of blind faith, how the church attracts new followers and keeps a tight hold on its A-list, celebrity devotees. Following his 2012 Peabody Award-winning documentary “Mea Maxima Culpa” – Alex Gibney’s investigation into the Catholic Church – the director dives deep into one of the most controversial and secretive religions in the world, exploring what members of Scientology are willing to do in the name of religion. “Going Clear” touches on a wide range of aspects of the church, from its origins, through an intimate portrait of the church’s founder L. Ron Hubbard, to its present-day recruiting tactics and church officials’ conduct.
