This feature-length docudrama tracks the final build-up to a horrific doomsday: the infamous mass murder and suicides of Jim Jones’ cult followers in the jungles of Guyana, where over 900 men, women and children died on November 18th, 1978.
Using extensive dramatic re-enactments, newly-released U.S. government information, as well as archival footage and interviews, Jonestown: Paradise Lost goes beyond ‘official reality’ to take the viewer deep into the inner workings of this monstrous cult and its apocalyptic end.
Produced in association with: Vision TV (Canada), The History (US), France 3 (France) and BSkyB (UK)
