More than a decade after leaving the Reverend Sun Myung Moon’s Unification Church (the “Moonies”), filmmaker Cara Jones attempts to finally break free from the religious movement which dominated her childhood. Through a trove of never before seen footage from within the church and extraordinary home videos of her family’s upbringing alongside Reverend Moon and his disciples, BLESSED CHILD is one daughter’s attempt to unpack the legacy of the decisions her parents made while challenging assumptions – hers and ours – about cults and family.

“Intimate…. extremely personal…This isn’t a black-and-white tale of religious indoctrination” – David Ehrlich, Indiewire

Directed by Cara Jones, 2019. USA, 74 mins.
