New German Movie About Scientology
A public TV network in Germany has secretly filmed a TV movie about corporate Scientology and their destructive disconnection policy. Based on the true story of Heiner von Rönn, “Until Nothing is Left” is set to air on March 31st. Spiegel Online has the full report.
Heiner von Rönn could reel off a sobering list of the people and things he has lost to Scientology. They include thousands of euros, 10 years of his life, his former wife, and both his children.
Fifteen years after leaving the organization, Rönn recently found himself confronted with his own past again, complete with all the terminology and threats from back then. He was on the set of a German TV production, where rooms in a Scientology office had been meticulously reconstructed. The TV drama, whose plot is inspired by real events in Rönn’s life, deals with a family that falls apart because of the organization, which in Germany is regarded as a business rather than a church and is monitored by domestic intelligence agencies.
