DISFELLOWSHIPPED - STORIES FROM THE SHADOWS OF THE WATCHTOWER

Atte, Milko and Tiia are former Jehovah’s Witnesses. They have been disfellowshipped from the religion and are therefore shunned by current Jehovah’s Witnesses, including their immediate family members. In this film they share their heartbreaking stories and lift the veil on this cruel practice. Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Finnish Press Officer Veikko Leinonen represents the organisation's view on the topic.
