Sons of Perdition DVD Giveaway

It’s been a while since we’ve had a giveaway around here so let’s get December started with an early X-mas present! Thanks to director Tyler Measom, we’re giving away a DVD copy of his award winning film Sons of Perdition. Some of you may remember the film and its director’s (Tyler and co-director Jennilyn Merten) from their appearance on episode #11 of The Documentary Blog podcast. The film looks at a group of teenage boys who are exiled from their polygamous Utah community and are forced to integrate into the real world. Seems like a great double bill with Lucy Walker’s The Devil’s Playground. Here’s the synopsis:

“Sons of Perdition” profiles a group of teenage boys who were banished from the polygamous Utah community led by controversial spiritual leader Warren Jeffs. By following the journey of a group of boys who must navigate the real world after being purposefully raised to be ignorant, the film shows a vivid picture of the power that Jeffs wields over his followers, and daily struggles faced by teens who can’t go back to their families, even if they want to do so.

Sons of Perdition received an R-rating due to its “adult language”, but this DVD edition of the film will feature an alternate “family friendly” audio track with all of the swearing removed (making Cleanflix’s job that much easier). If you’d like to enter to win a copy of Sons of Perdition on DVD, simply send me an email here with ‘PERDITION’ in the subject line. Be sure to include your full name and mailing address and I will announce the winner sometime next week. Good luck!
