Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple

Wednesday October 19, 2011 – 7:30 pm 
USA 2006. Director: Stanley Nelson

Post-screening discussion with Dale Beyerstein

The 1960s ushered in nearly two decades of intense social and cultural tumult — change was in the air, revolution on the horizon, and all things seemed possible. Many looked to transcendental meditation, free love, Black Power, or LSD. But for some, Jim Jones, the charismatic and forceful leader of Peoples Temple, offered the perfect balance of spiritual fulfilment and political commitment. Using survivor interviews and archival footage, this documentary tells the story of those who followed Jim Jones into the largest mass suicide/murder in history.
