Jakobine

Synopsis

Cult members follow the female zealot Jakobine Mentz (Marlise Saueressig) into the Brazilian wilderness in this drama based on a true story. Their leader believes she is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ and has convinced her faithful parishioners to follow her lead. This socialist group that advocated free sex and living off the land was systematically eliminated by the military and the government. The release of the film followed the mass suicide at Jonestown, Guyana. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
