Heaven’s Gate: The Cult of Cults is a thorough examination of the infamous UFO cult through the eyes of its former members and loved ones. What started in 1975 with the disappearance of 20 people from  a small town in Oregon, ended in 1997 with the largest suicide on US soil and changed the face of modern new age religion forever. 

Director Clay Tweel and producer Shannon Riggs join us to discuss the intricacies of their documentary and what they took away from this fascinating examination of the human mind. 

Heaven’s Gate: The Cult of Cults is available to stream now on HBO MAX.
