Movie trucks on campus...

Curious about the row of white movie trucks in our parking lot?

After a bit of investigating, we learned that the trucks are renting parking space from Saint Mary’s. A film crew is in town shooting a TV movie-of-the-week for Lifetime Network called NXIVM Cult: A Mother’s Nightmare.

NXIVM is a now-defunct American self-help and personal development organization that targeted wealthy and famous women. Former leader Keith Raniere was recently convicted for sex trafficking, and many others -- including former Smallville actress Allison Mack — are facing charges of racketeering, forced labour, identity theft and more.

The movie is being produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment. Local company Magic Rock Productions is also involved.
