This French documentary goes inside the Landmark Education Forum in Paris to film it firsthand with hidden cameras. After this documentary was broadcast nationally in France Landmark left the country.

    • Watch and experience for yourself the Forum.

    • See a French Forum leader bring a woman to tears, after berating her before a crowded room of Forum participants. He calls her an "asshole" and taunts the woman while she is crying.

    • A “brainwashing expert” explains how Landmark “breaks a person” and labels its methods "totalitarian."

    • Learn why the French consider Landmark a "sect."

    • See a former Scientologist compare Landmark to her "sect."

    • Landmark’s method of “education” is labeled “emotional abuse.”
