The Independent Lens series has taken on a number of controversial subjects, but this recent documentary about the world of Jehovah's Witnesses is quite an eye-opener. While some people can be dismissive of this faith, this documentary provides a nuanced and rather fascinating look at both those who practice this faith and their involvement in a record number of important Supreme Court cases. Visitors might do well to start by looking over the "Myths and Realities" section, which provides answers to questions such as "Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe in drinking and dancing" and so on. Clicking on the "Jehovah's Witnesses" section of the site brings visitors to materials on their role in Supreme Court cases of note, their beliefs surrounding blood and blood transfusions, and their community structure. Additionally, visitors can view select clips from the program and also read interviews with two of the Jehovah's Witnesses featured in the film.
