Director: Daniel Kokotajlo

First-time director Kokotajlo draws on his upbringing as a Jehovah’s Witness to tell the story of a single mother and her daughters, and how each reacts to living in a strict and patriarchal society. When one of the daughters begins to turn away from the faith, her mother and sister are commanded to shun her by the church elders, leading to unbearable tensions in their home, before tragedy strikes… ‘Apostasy is a supremely intelligent and gripping drama’ (The Guardian).
