Absolutely not! We are Christians that seek to shed light on one particular man who has done very specific things that he attributes to God. The darkness of god that we allude to in the title of the film does not refer to God as being dark, but is a reference to men making a god in their own image and doing evil things in the name of God. We believe that God is light and in God there is no darkness. The darkness in this film is completely man made. Unfortunately, God’s name gets attached to it.
No, none at all. All proceeds will be donated to a non-profit organization that some survivors are currently forming in order to help victims that have been abused by Roger Voegtlin and Fairhaven Baptist Church.
Much research was done before making this decision. This research included questioning a well-known international documentary film maker, two Hollywood agents of which one advises the Sundance Film Festival committee, a couple of well-known actors who write and direct, an accountant, and an attorney. For ease of production, simplicity, and the legal protection that an LLC provides, it was strongly advised that we form an LLC and donate any profits made to a non-profit organization.
To that end, we are also currently working with Fairhaven Alumni to create a non-profit organization where a survivor’s support foundation will be set up to help those coming out of Fairhaven with the various emotional, psychological, and social issues they may face.
Bennu Films was formed by Pauline Williams and Rob Drlich for the sole purpose of making this film. Read more about them here.
Honestly, your money. We need donations from you. Our needs consist of video equipment, studio time, and the biggest thing will be travel expenses as many victims live worldwide.
