Will Allen gave two decades of his life to a Los Angeles-based cult, and to its charismatic leader. What began as a journey toward personal growth turned into a life of subjugation -- one from which he could not free himself. His life in the cult, and his eventual escape, became a documentary film, called “Holy Hell,” that’s he’s bringing to the Honolulu Museum of Art’s 27th Annual Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival. "Holy Hell” screens at Friday August 19th, at the Doris Duke Theater.
