2019 DOC WEEK: FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO
PLUS Q & A with Director Dan Karslake
From the director/producer of FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO comes a new film that continues the conversation about the impact of religious belief on the lives of LGBTQ people. It challenges the far-right's use of the Bible and the U.S. Constitution to fight against equality for LGBTQ citizens and takes on the horrors of reparative therapy. Over the past few years, there's been a great deal of progress towards fairness for LGBTQ people. Since marriage equality became the law of the land in 2015, however, the backlash from the right has been swift and severe. By telling the stories of families caught up in this conflict and informed by the wisdom of a number of religious and constitutional thinkers, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO shows the way forward through love, reconciliation and acceptance.
