Ronald's Little Factory: LDS Sexual Purity Culture with Director Brent Bokovoy

Mormonish Podcast discusses “Ronald's Little Factory, a post Mormon movie premier this weekend!

Rebecca and Landon sit down with writer and director, Brent Bokovoy to discuss the premier of his new film, “Ronald’s Little Factory!” Ronald's Little Factory is a dark comedy about a 19-year-old Mormon boy who handcuffs his hands to his bedpost to keep himself from sinning...but then becomes stuck. The movie is an irreverent, funny, dark and twisted journey that highlighted the serious consequences of religious purity culture that many of us can relate to through our experiences growing up in the LDS church. Brent is a creative, sensitive and talented person who we have really enjoyed getting to know better! You still have time to catch the second screening of the film tomorrow, after that the movie will be leaving the state and be screened in California, Idaho and Arizona.

2nd Screening Sunday, February 26th, 2023 at 2:30 p.m. Brewvies Cinema Pub, 677 South 200 West, Salt Lake City, UT 84101
