There are two new web documentary projects about the former guru Andrew Cohen.

This is a sixteen-minute web film:  http://www.theatlantic.com/video/index/501413/life-and-death-of-a-cult/

It's not great, does not really get into the full story, but a filmmaker would need much more time to be more thorough.  It certainly captures Andrew's current or recent personal struggles and he does acknowledge some of the harm he caused.

And coming in a few weeks is a 6-part web series - HOW I CREATED A CULT.  Haven't seen it yet, so no idea its quality, but probably more in-depth than the Atlantic piece.
