In 2007, Dennis Lavery and Karen Di Milia each made their first documentaries in the DIY Documentary workshop. Inspired by the thrill and challenge of documentary filmmaking, they teamed up to create their first feature, In the Shadow of the Temple. NW Documentary congratulates Dennis and Karen in their Portland premiere!
Those who consider leaving Mormonism face the consequences of isolation from their communities, shattered marriages and devastated family relationships. In the Shadow of the Temple is a 55 minute documentary that weaves together the stories of still-practicing non-believers and ex-Mormons as they reject the culture and teachings of the Church. Their strategies of coping can be as varied as hiding their disbelief and continuing to practice, to defiant refutation of the Church and its teachings.
