The HBO Original three-part docuseries SAVIOR COMPLEX from Emmy®-winning filmmaker Jackie Jesko, executive produced by Nick Capote, Alex Waterfield, and Academy Award® winner Roger Ross Williams (HBO’s “Love to Love You, Donna Summer,” “God Loves Uganda”) debuts TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on HBO followed by episodes two and three airing Wednesday, September 27 beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. All three episodes will be available to stream on Max beginning September 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

SAVIOR COMPLEX chronicles the controversial story surrounding Renee Bach, a young American missionary who felt called by God to set up a charity for malnourished children in Jinja, Uganda. But years later, shocking allegations arose that Renee was treating the sick children herself, without medical qualifications. Detailing Renee’s divisive journey, the series addresses the wider questions around “white saviorism” and the ethics of foreign aid work done in the name of humanitarian and religious ideals.

Savior Complex has been getting a lot of backlash recently. I was hoping someone would make some kind of documentary on Renee Bach, but I don't like that they interviewed her. I confess I'm perversely curious, but I'll keep this docuseries at arm's length until I learn more. Does anyone else have any thoughts?
