The new HBO Love Has Won trailer reveals that director Hannah Olson got intimate access to the cult members. "She's God," one of the members says in the series. "I was able to see her true unconditional love," another comments. "Sometime's creation looks a little messy," a female follower says.
The Love Has Won cult made international headlines after Amy Carlson was found dead in April of 2021. The group had kept her body for a month and transported her from Mount Shasta to Crestone. They set up a shrine in her bedroom, wrapped her in Christmas lights, and put makeup on her. The followers believed Carlson was "out of communication" and had not died.
Amy Carlson left her children to follow a spiritual leader named Amerith White Eagle and later gathered her own following. The group live-streamed to thousands of people every day. The police raided the cult's home in Crestone and arrested the members. They were later all released and the charges were dropped.
