Screen Rant is proud to present an exclusive clip from the character-driven documentary series The Fourth Wall, which premiered in early June at the Tribeca Film Festival. The docuseries is told from the perspective of Keith Newton, who was born into the Sullivanian cult courtesy of his father, leader Sal Newton. Hiding in plain sight during the 1970s and ’80s, the Sullivanians were a “psychotherapy sex cult” on Manhattan’s Upper West Side that eschewed the nuclear family dynamic. In their heyday, they even ran an experimental theater troupe called the Fourth Wall.

The Fourth Wall explores the draw of such an organization, like many other cult documentaries before it. Audiences will be introduced to Newton’s perversion of psychiatrist Harry Stack Sullivan’s teachings as well as understand the allure of affordable rent options in New York City, but they will also learn about the lasting effects on the members. The docuseries tells the story of the Sullivanians’ pinnacle as well as its downfall in 1991, and then it goes further by following the healing process of ex-members, starting with Keith himself. But to first understand the myth of the Sullivanians, one must understand the man who gathered them — which is what the below clip aims to do.
