In Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple

On November 18th, 1978 the largest mass-murder suicide took place in Jonestown, Guyana.

The man at the center of the tragedy was Jim Jones, the elusive and deranged head of the cult known as the Peoples Temple.

Over 900 people met their death that day either by drinking the cyanide laced Kool-Aid or by gunshots and strangulations for those that refused to commit suicide.

In Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple, critically acclaimed filmmakers Stanley Nelson, Marcia Smith, and Noland Walker take viewers on an in-depth journey into that sad and sordid affair and interview some of the few remaining survivors of the ghastly event.

One woman lost four children at Jonestown and another man recounts, how, at gunpoint, he was forced to watch his wife and month old baby ingest poison. He escaped by running into the woods and hiding until help arrived.

To this day, in the San Francisco Bay Area, Jim Jones still has followers, despite his death.

Devoted followers who escaped, still sleep with his photo underneath their pillow and still refer to him as "Father," in the past tense.
