Sundance World Premiere 2015: Amy Berg’s ‘Prophet’s Prey’

January 17th, 2015 - Graham Eley

Investigative filmmaker, Amy Berg, turns her attention to Warren Jeffs, who abused his position as leader of a Latter-Day Saints fundamental church in carrying out multiple sex crimes but still wields influence over his congregation from a prison cell. It’s Berg’s second documentary to look at institutionalised church sex offences after the Oscar nominated ‘Deliver Us from Evil’ eight years ago. She is currently best known for the rough justice doc, ‘West of Memphis’.
