Love Has Won: The Cult of Mother God follows the life of Amy Carlson as she went from a McDonald’s manager and mother of three to the leader of an internet cult. After researching spirituality on the internet, Carlson’s life changed. She left her family, moved to a different state, and took on the persona of Mother God. Broadcasting her ideas across the internet through YouTube videos and live-streams, Carlson recruited others to join her. But, as depicted in the first episode of the docuseries, Carlson’s path ended with the police finding her mummified body in the cult’s headquarters.

We spoke with director, Hannah Olson, about how she began Love Has Won. “I found this story and became it was layered in a way that really interested me,” Olson said. “I was immediately kind of interested in Amy’s back story. When I found the story, I wondered how a McDonald’s manager with three kids could become a mummified cult leader. Then it was kind of in answering that question and how could this fate befall someone that I realized it had something to do with the internet. And these questions I was asking about class and the internet and reality.”
