From the director of the acclaimed, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO, comes FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO, a new documentary that explores the intersection of religion, sexual orientation and gender identity in America.
The arrival of marriage equality was seen by many as the pinnacle achievement of the march toward full equality for the LGBTQ community. But for many on the right, it was the last straw, and their public backlash has been swift, severe and successful.
In collaboration with religious conservatives, politicians are invoking both the Bible and the U. S. Constitution in their campaigns for the “religious freedom” to legally discriminate. By telling the stories of four families struggling with these issues, the film offers healing and understanding to those caught in the crosshairs of scripture, sexuality and identity.
Tickets are $10.00, and a significant portion will benefit OUT at the Movies. OUT at the Movies will provide the screening link for as long as there is interest.
OUT at the Movies hopes to host a Zoom Q & A with director, Daniel Karslake and some of the families the weekend of June 19th. All of those who purchase a “ticket” to stream the film will receive info about the Q & A and be entered in a drawing to receive prizes including two festival passes, two invitations to our festival’s VIP party and two pink wristbands for our next Key West in Winston-Salem celebration.
