7:00: Q&A with filmmaker Cara Jones via Skype

In this intimate, nuanced look at her life and family, filmmaker Cara Jones revisits her upbringing inside the Unification Church of Reverend Sun Myung Moon—known as the Moonies—where her parents are still high-ranking members. As a true believer, Jones had an arranged marriage and wed in a stadium ceremony led by Moon himself, but she separated from the church over a decade ago. Interweaving home videos and interviews, she reveals some of the inner workings of the controversial “cult,” but keeps her focus on the complex legacy of her parents’ decisions.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)
