Director: Daniel Kokotajlo Cast: Siobhan Finneran, Robert Emms Country: UK Language: Urdu/English Apostasy is a hard-hitting drama that follows the lives of a family of Jehovah’s witnesses in the UK. After she is forced to outcast her sister for committing a grave sin, Alex begins to question something that had otherwise been a certainty, her faith in God. Based on writer-director Daniel Kokotajlo's personal experience with the community, the film deals with how the Church’s dogma is used to control its parish, but also the moral quandaries that arise when religion meets personal judgement.
