Children Of Waco, The
1 x 60'
David Koresh was the leader of the ‘Branch Davidian’ religious cult. Young children, some merely toddlers, were willingly enlisted by their parents in to his religious army.
But after concerns were raised over the groups’ weapons violations, the FBI ordered a raid. During a 51 day siege, the children were treated as political pawns; some were released after painful negotiations, whilst others were kept within the cult’s compound. After a devastating final confrontation, 74 people were dead, including 27 children.
With unseen footage and exclusive interviews with survivors, we journey into this cult and the disastrous siege, seen through the eyes of its most innocent victims, the children.
