For They Not Know What They Do
directed by Daniel Karslake, USA 2019, 91' (English friendly)
In June 2015, the US Supreme Court declared same-sex marriage legal. The decision evoked euphoria among human rights defenders, while a number of religious organizations had a very different reaction. They intensified their homophobic activities, and the hate speech employed by preachers of various denominations in the United States also intensified. This historic event is the starting point for Daniel G. Karslake’s documentary. The director spoke with four families in which religion plays an important role. A child in each of the families had come out as non-heteronormative. How did their relatives react? And what happened to those who came out—Ryan, Sarah, Elliot, and Vico?
