Over the course of the 20th century, a mixture of narrow modes of thought and excessive violence, coupled with notions about obedience as defined by bourgeois Christian values, shaped many ecclesiastical youth welfare institutions. Three films disrupt the common stereotype that child abuse, sexual violence, and an insistence on obedience characterize the Catholic church more than the Protestant church. Three movies released between 2010 and 2015, King of Devil’s Island, Sanctuary, and Colonia, all explore the obsession with obedience inherent in society and the Protestant church. They portray obedience as a relic of the past because it genuinely no longer provides a model for society or education.
