MoviesMakingADifference (a 501c3) is proud to announce the completion of their latest film, 'CULT CARTEL'. It is a companion to the award-winning 'CATHEDRAL CANYON'.


What makes this project especially unique is this film actually employed many of those who have managed to escape or been banished from the community with little education, no family support or understanding of the outside world. For years they have been struggling to rebuild or, rather begin their lives.


Escapees are featured actors (this is not a documentary but a feature based on true events) and paid both behind and in front of the camera. They will not be sensationally exploited as they so often are so audiences can peer into their personal lives but this film will empower them to finally have a voice and enlighten those that have so long ignored their plight.


Some were production assistants. Others were involved with craft services, hair and make-up, camera, and other crew. Young Barlow and Mosiah Barlow (raised FLDS) along with a group of little boys are featured on the poster, having important roles in the movie.

They were also determined to tell their stories as script consultants, facing their painful pasts and pleading with the public to join us in MakingADifference to make sure that this stops once and for all and never happens again.

CULT Cartel

Your donations make a difference!

'Cult Cartel' was inspired by the very last words of the late Jack Koch pleading with Diana the importance of doing a movie through the voices of those whose story needs to be told. And then to have them act alongside Hollywood actors. Jack, you were SO right. What a story it is and an experience for all involved!!! The film is dedicated to Jack.
