It Takes a Cult to screen at Anthology Film Archives

Check it out Wednesday December 23rd at 8:30

Eric Johannsen IT TAKES A CULT (2009, 80 Minutes, Video)
A new feature version of the popular short we screened last year about a bizarre hippie cult, the Israel Family (aka, The Love Family). The communal religious movement born in Seattle grew to a tribe of nearly 300 men, women, and children. Raised in the Israel Family, Johannsen brings an intimate portrait of communal life and what drew them all together. []


  1. Finally someone from the inside is talking about this!
    Can't wait to see the film...

  2. Hey Eric,

    My wife spent a year with the love family as a child and would like a way to view the film. Is there any way to get a copy or view online?

    Many thanks,
