This documentary from director Costa Botes (The Last Dogs of Winter, Forgotten Silver) explores the life of Angie Meiklejohn. Growing up, Meiklejohn and her siblings spent time in Bert Potter’s alternative lifestyle settlement Centrepoint, where they suffered sexual abuse. Through the lens of Meiklejohn’s experiences as both child and adult, Botes explores the dynamics of abuse, and how its victims are impacted. Says Botes: “whatever her past hurts, Angie is an engaging and loveable human being.” Angie debuts at the 2018 New Zealand International Film Festival.

How could it ever be consider quite ok, for groups to cause this harm ?
So wrong. So unfair. So unrighteous.No kind of real justice either . Is it ?
Come on New Zealand
No real use in just pretending to be like world leaders ?. No sense in beseeching other countries to change ,when NZ obviously still need to change and start cleaning up aspect of its own nest first?.Might need to first cast out the beam out of their own eye (Matthew 7:5)
Enough harm already. Enough families hurt broken and ripped to shreds,already, over so called group freedoms of what fairly obviously isn’t actually any honest and fair kind of freedom?
Look at the pain within the eyes of this woman .The tears. She how she’s still suffering,still questioning if perhaps maybe its only all her own fault
How is that real justice ?
This needed have ever needed to even happen, if only more New Zealanders had taken it upon themselves to also act more responsibly
No need that families would need experience such extreme aspect of family dysfunction,through becoming caught up within Gloriavaile. Or Exclusive Brethren.Or any extremely domineering group what creates this level of harm.
No need to involve thought police, either ? .Is there. No need to employ thought police, anymore that our country might require to employ thought police ,so as to help prevent physical violence, or rape or murder, or any other aspect of extreme harm. Such as drunk driving or whatever else
We help manage and try to help prevent, all of those other kinds of extreme harm already
No need to involve thought police
Just enough responsible citizen, and authority ,whom all honestly care enough,and as such are then willing to step in and help stop ongoing extreme aspects of harm
The extreme harm needs to stop ?
All kinds of aspect of extreme harm can indeed be managed . Right ?
Lets get on with it
