Movie Info

Kenja, a "spiritual enlightenment" organization founded in Australia by Ken Dyers and his wife Jan Hamilton in 1982, and whose members claim to know the purpose of life, the secrets of the human spirit, and the answers to the mysteries of the universe. In the twenty-five years since Kenja was initially founded, the organization has been frequently criticized for it's secretive rules and controversial practices. Dyers himself has been described as a "seedy conman" by enraged critics who claim that the man and his organization are to blame for the disappearance of their loved ones. At the time of filming, Kenja was preparing to defend themselves in the latest of numerous court cases. As a result, Dyers and Hamilton invited the filmmakers into their "spiritual enlightenment center" in order to prove that they had nothing to hide. The resulting film offers a candid glimpse into a world where environment defines a reality that is as fragile as the truth itself. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Beyond Our Ken

All Critics (3)

This is no witch hunt: the filmmakers maintain an even handed tone throughout, and give equal time to all parties. It's ultimately Dyers and Hamilton who bring themselves undone, and Dyers' final outburst is highly unsettling and near-damning.

Thoroughly riveting, Beyond Our Ken was made with the co-operation of Ken Dyer and Jan Hamilton, allowing the filmmakers insider access -- Luke Walker joined up for six months to have such access
