Go behind the scenes of the compelling new HBO Documentary Film “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief,” which premiered at Sundance this year and will air on HBO March 16: Academy Award® winning writer and director Alex Gibney (“Taxi to the Dark Side”), Pulitzer Prize–winning author Lawrence Wright who wrote the book, and Oscar–winning writer–director–producer Paul Haggis, who appears in the film. “Going Clear” profiles former members of the church of Scientology, whose adherents include A–list Hollywood celebrities, shining a light on how the church cultivates true believers, including their experiences and what they are willing to do in the name of religion.
