VIRGIN TALES ON SHOWTIME! JULY 23
"There's something indescribably creepy about watching teenage girls at father-daughter purity balls pledge to marry men just like Daddy, which is why Mirjam von Arx's scrupulously respectful stance in "Virgin Tales" is the wisest position she could take." 
-VARIETY 

 

"[A] deeply engaging film that illuminates the complicated intersection of personal and political power in modern day America." 
-CBC News, The Passionate Eye 

 

WMM is proud to announce the broadcast premiere of VIRGIN TALES, WMM's newest release, a fascinating new documentary by Mirjam von Arx, on Showtime! Don't miss this curious portrait of a new generation of Evangelicals, banded together in the name of sexual purity and Christian Utopia.

 

As a counter-movement to the attitudes and practices of contemporary culture, one in eight girls in the U.S. today has vowed to remain "unsoiled" until marriage. But the seven children of Randy and Lisa Wilson, the Colorado Springs founders of the Purity Ball, take the concept one step further -- they save even the first kiss for the altar. VIRGIN TALES observes this burgeoning culture, following the Wilsons as they work to foment a powerful social movement based on servitude, sanctity and chastity. View the trailer to learn more.

 

VIRGIN TALES premieres on on July 23 at 7:30PM ET, with repeat screenings through August, 2013. Visit Showtime for local times and listings.
