EL APÓSTOL, a Documentary Series Co-produced by N+ Docs and Univision Noticias, Will Stream Exclusively on ViX

MIAMI –SEPTEMBER 13, 2023 – The documentary series EL APÓSTOL (The Apostle), a co-production of N+ Docs and Univision Noticias, will premiere on Thursday, September 14 exclusively on the premium plan of ViX, the world’s leading Spanish-language streaming service.

Throughout the four episodes, which are available since its premiere, ELAPÓSTOL revolves around the case of “La Luz del Mundo,” a religious cult led by a family with presence in more than 50 countries and more than 5 million followers that for many years has allegedly committed systematic abuses and sexual violence. Since its founding in 1926, in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, the three generations behind this organization have been involved in various controversies.

This journalistic documentary series is based on a rigorous and thorough investigation carried out both in Mexico and in the United States where the leader of the “La Luz del Mundo” church, proclaimed by his followers as “the Apostle of Jesus Christ on Earth”, is sentenced to 16 years in prison for sexual abuse of minors.

The investigation will reveal the testimonies of a group of survivors in both countries who raise their voices to demand justice while fighting painful personal battles to rebuild their lives.

Despite several strong cases, this religious cult has only been prosecuted in the United States, while in Mexico, its country of origin, the authorities have not acted accordingly.

EL APÓSTOL joins the list of N+ Docs documentary productions that are being recognized worldwide for their journalistic and audiovisual quality.
