Purple Haze: A Video Documentary, by Mary Anne
"Purple Haze" is a feature documentary on the history of the Jonestown
massacre. It chronicles the life of Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple.
The documentary shows the many faces of Reverend Jones. It also shows
how he built his power base step-by-step enjoying the support of First
Lady Rosalyn Carter and Governor Jerry Brown. Survivors of the events
of November 18th, 1978 give incredible detail of what really happened
that day deep in the Guyana jungle. Two survivors of the airstrip
shooting describe the ambush which killed five people.
The documentary dispels the myth that over 900 Americans willingly
committed suicide. The people who died in the Guyana jungle were not
crazy people incapable of thinking for themselves. They were mostly
middle-class Americans who for one reason or another were searching
for something in their life.
The documentary has aired in Canada several times on History Television
in a series called "Turning Points of History."
"Purple Haze" was directed and written by Mary Anne Alton an independent
producer living in Toronto, Canada. The series "Turning Points" is
produced by Barna-Alper Productions in association with Alliance Atlantis.
The documentary is available to purchase for broadcast. For more information,
