Vermont International Film Festival is proud to offer Daniel Karslake's new documentary FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO on Virtual Cinema. When you buy a ticket, 50% of the proceeds go straight back to the festival to support them during this difficult time.
From the director of FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO, Dan Karslake's new film explores the intersection of religion, sexual orientation and gender identity in current-day America. The arrival of marriage equality was seen by many as the pinnacle achievement of the march toward full equality for LGBTQ people. But for many on the Right, it was the last straw, and their public backlash has been swift, severe and successful. 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.
"In this vital, authentic follow-up to For the Bible Tells Me So, filmmaker Daniel Karslake returns a decade later to the religious right, embittered by the Supreme Court's Obergefell decision and emboldened by the rise of Trump. Heartbreaking - and inspirational." -The Advocate
