Get an in-depth look at the controversial

For April, the monthly Cane Fire Film Series presents the feature documentary My Scientology Movie, which explores the controversial Church of Scientology.


Following a long fascination with the religion and with much experience in dealing with eccentric, unpalatable and unexpected human behavior, the beguilingly unassuming Louis Theroux won't take no for an answer when his request to enter the Church's headquarters is turned down.


Inspired by the Church's use of filming techniques, and aided by ex-members of the organization, Theroux uses actors to replay some incidents people claim they experienced as members in an attempt to better understand the way it operates.


In a bizarre twist, it becomes clear that the Church is also making a film about Louis Theroux. Suffused with a good dose of humor and moments worthy of a Hollywood script, My Scientology Movie is stranger than fiction.


The Cane Fire Film Series will screen My Scientology Movie this Monday night, beginning at 7:30 p.m., at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in Downtown Lafayette. Tickets are $12 at the door.
