Gloriavale

Film (Trailer) – 2022

Gloriavale follows the Ready family, exploring serious allegations at the Gloriavale Christian Community on the West Coast. After Sharon Ready's daughter died of asphyxiation at Gloriavale, her son John, who'd left the religious sect, launched a civil case against its leaders, claiming Gloriavale women lived "in servitude". Sharon's daughter Virginia and her kids left the community over cases of sexual abuse. In this trailer Sharon, John and Virginia reflect on their time at Gloriavale, and lawyer Liz Gregory talks of "unending" revelations by ex-members. The Australian-NZ doco debuts at the NZ International Film Festival.

It was like a dream...the start of Gloriavale.
– Sharon Ready remembers the high hopes she had for her religious community
