Each new movie will premiere on the Starz network on a Monday each month. The feature debuted in September with the documentary The Age of Consequences that is currently streaming on Starz.

The Age of Consequences  focuses on how climate change will ultimately impact global peace and harmony. It is a documentary that can be seen as a warning cry to take steps now to address the dangers that will come if nothing is done to save precious resources.

On October 9, 2017, the documentary 3 Hikers will premiere. The documentary tells the story of US. citizens Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer, and Josh Fattal who spent two years as political prisoners in Iran.

Later that month, on November 27, 2017, the Julie Sokolow documentary Woman on Fire debuts. The documentary tells the story of the first transgender NY firefighter, Brooke Guinan.

In December, the story of the Arab Spring will be told in the documentary Tickling Giants .

Several documentaries coming to Starz in 2018 include  Wasted! The Story of Food Waste  takes a close look at the problem of wasted food and steps that can be taken to resolve the problem. Anthony Bourdain serves as the documentary's executive producer.

The Family  reveals the twisted story of an Australian cult led by Anne Hamilton-Byrne. Hamilton-Byrne led The Family from the sixties to the nineties, and though she was beautiful, articulate, and smart, those who grew up in the cult state she was an abusive psychopath.

Hamilton-Byrne believed she was the Messiah and was raising up children to be her end-time warrior army. The children were isolated from others, all had bleached hair, and went through extreme discipline and punishment. There are reports that the children in the cult were forced to take LSD.

There are rumors that Julian Assange was part of this cult, and though he has admitted to being on the run with his family from a cult, he hasn't specifically identified Anne Hamilton-Byrne as someone he knew or as the cult leader they were on the run from.

The Family is an award-winning documentary and will be a fascinating watch along with the other documentaries set to air on Starz.

    Hi All, One of the Hamilton Byrne group kids here. No we weren't all blonde, as anyone looking at any of the pictures of the whole group ( 28 kids at it's largest) can see. I have never understood how people can look straight at pictures of brunettes and red heads and say with a straight face that they were all blonde?? Is the rest of the movie going to be about that accurate ? ( Some kids,mostly natural blondes when they were young, had their hair bleached blonder, the rest, no. In teenage years some of these kids also went back to their natural color.) Also I have an issue with the use of childhood movies of us. Many of us, me included didn't give any permission for our images to be used.Many of us who chose not to be in the movie have our own happy successful lives, and using our images without permission feels like an invasion of privacy. The least they could do is blur the childhood faces of anyone who did not give written permission or choose to be included. Perhaps they already have. I hope so.
