Gloriavale

Season 1

In this series we visit Gloriavale, a closed community of Christian fundamentalists living on New Zealand's isolated West Coast. This is a world untouched by feminism, where women live in submission to men, welcome every baby as a gift from God, and work each day for the benefit others while they wait for the world to end. Dwell into this isolated community through this three part series.

1. A World Apart

Paul Valor is about to marry Pearl Hope, a girl he hardly knows, but he's not worried. At Gloriavale, a closed community of Christian fundamentalists, arranged marriage and absolute obedience to God and the leaders is the only life he knows. The story of their engagement and marriage offers an insight into a community whose lifestyle may be difficult to understand in the 21st century.

We delve into the community's views on birth with families, regularly made up of 10 or more children, all seen as gifts from God. We discover how the death of community members is a happy event because the person is going to be with God.
